7 Key Principles of Six Sigma
In brief, Six Sigma is a methodology that ensures quality processes are followed every time to reduce variations.
The 7 key principles of Six Sigma
The seven key principles of Six Sigma are:
- Always focus on customer.
- Identify and understand how the work gets done. Understand how work really happens.
- Make your processes flow smoothly.
- Reduce waste and concentrate on value.
- Stop defects by removing variation.
- Involve and collaborate with your team.
- Approach improvement activity in a systematic way.
This methodology can be used to find aspects of product or process that are measurable like time, cost and quality. Then inspect that measurable item and reject any products that do not meet the Six Sigma standard. Any process that created unacceptable products has to be improved upon.
