is Six Sigma?
Six Sigma is a rigorous and disciplined methodology that uses
data and statistical analysis to measure and improve a company's operational
performance by identifying and eliminating "defects" in manufacturing and
service-related processes. Commonly defined as 3.4 defects per million
opportunities. Six Sigma can be defined and understood at three distinct levels:
metric, methodology and philosophy.
Six Sigma is a customer focused, data driven methodology for
achieving real break through success in business. Six Sigma is a comprehensive
and flexible system and can be applied to reduce defects, improve designs and
Performance Level (99.73%)
is not enough?
A three Sigma level company is
not good enough, because a 3Sigma level performance means,
* 200,00 lost articles of mail per hour.
* No electricity for almost 7 hours, each month.
* 2 short or long landings at major airports, each day.
* 200,000 wrong drug prescriptions each year.
* Unsafe drinking water almost 15 minutes each day.
* 5000 wrong surgical operations per week.
(The above information is based on a survey conducted in US.)
Now, can anyone afford to stop at 3Sigma level performance? If a company
performs even at 3Sigma level, (that is 99.73% result fall with in the control
limits) the above defects are possible. Because of the above cited huge loses,
generally many companies go for Six Sigma Implementation Programs/Certification.
need to do Six Sigma?
Six Sigma can cut waste and save money. Consider how much money could be
saved by eliminating potential defects and the resulting scrap and warranty
returns. Time and money may be wasted in corrective actions and delays. Also
consider the image those results from product failures for the customer. In
order to determine the waste, you need to understand what adds value to your
product and what does not.
One way to know how good you are doing is to compare your
operation to similar ones elsewhere, as a benchmark. If there are similar
operations in your organization, then bench marking will be easier.
Six Sigma Costs and Savings:
One cannot expect to significantly reduce costs and increase
sales using Six Sigma without investing in training, organizational
infrastructure and culture evolution. It is sure you can reduce costs and
increase sales in a localized area of a business using the Six Sigma quality
methodology. For Example,
"Motorola adopted Six Sigma in1987. In 1988, Motorola won its
first Baldridge Award."
"Companies of all types and sizes are in the midst of a
quality revolution. GE saved $12 billion over five
years and added $1 to its earnings per share. Honeywell
(AlliedSignal) recorded more than $800 million in
"GE produces annual benefits of over $2.5 billion across the
organization from Six Sigma."
"Motorola reduced manufacturing costs by $1.4 billion from
"Six Sigma reportedly saved Motorola $15 billion over the
last 11 years."

GREEN BELT Final Exam:
This is an open book paper based exam wherein the
participants can refer to any students with them. The exam consists of only 100
multiple choice questions from all of the five DMAIC Process areas and 3-hours
is exam duration. There are no negative marks for wrong answers.
The final exam is conducted to measure the knowledge
gained by the participants and to demonstrate the added confidence level out of
this course. Candidates can take as many tests as needed until they get the pass
score of 60 %.
Please note that, the projects for improvement can be
from your own company (or) any other company. The projects can address the
entire company are small portion (or) part (or) division (or) a small process of
a business unit within the company. The candidates can also suggest project
titles from their company for the faculty / instructors or they can choose any
one of the projects available at IIPM. IIPM will facilitate the collection of
data and extend support staff services for the project period.
