Abstract

Six Sigma is a strategic methodology employed by many companies to reduce costs and improve productivity. Blue chip companies such as General Electric, Motorola, and 3M implement thousands of Six Sigma projects every year. This is probably the only concept which has attracted the attention of almost all companies across the world irrespective of their business mission. The strength of Six Sigma is the way in which it structures the problem and the solution methodology to solve the problem. Its rigour and structured methodology are the main differentiators between Six Sigma and other process improvement techniques. This publication is a carefully developed integration of mathematical models that relate Six Sigma and reliability measures. Case studies further integrate the material throughout the book to illustrate the application of the models. In addition the book introduces and discusses many aspects of reliability and Six Sigma, and illustrates the main difference between other quality initiatives and Six Sigma. © 2006 by Springer Science+Business Media, Inc., All rights reserved.
