Implementing Six Sigma: Part I, 12 July 2001 [cached]
A Six Sigma quality level is said to equate to 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO). [Pat Spagon from Motorola University prefers to use the terminology "sigma quality level" to distinguish this quality measurement from the sigma nomenclature that quantifies the spread of a distribution. (Spagon 1998).]
Many companies have recently experienced success using Six Sigma as a business strategy.When a company implements a Six Sigma business strategy, statistical tools are used in a structured fashion within processes to create products or services that are improved, less expensive, and more timely.Repeated use of the tools by practitioners on a project by project basis can significantly improve the bottom line; however, if the techniques are not used wisely there is a very large danger that the effort will be counterproductive and frustrating.
