What is Six Sigma?

  • Six Sigma GraphicTo achieve Six Sigma quality, a process must produce no more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. An “opportunity” is defined as a chance for a nonconformance to specification.


  • Because Six Sigma quality approaches zero defects, it is a way to quantify “World Class” quality.
  • Once we reach the Six Sigma level of quality, our customers will be able to recognize our products and services as superior to the competition.
  • With Six Sigma quality, we will provide total customer satisfaction.
