6 Sigma Timeframe/Period

Hi..., I have a concern regarding the execution of 6 sigma... When a business has to move from one sigma level to another, for how long we have to measure and analyse and how long (approximately) does the total process last ?

6 Sigma Timeframe

The time needed depends on the project. You don't move forward without the milestones being achieved but I've seen improvements in administrative procedures take just a few days to complete the entire project.

As far as measuring the Defects per Million Opportunities to come up with a current sigma level, you will always be measuring this and you could be at any sigma level for as long as you have problems that are creating defects.
