Operations and Supply Management

Six Sigma

The importance of quality has now been recognized by businesses for decades. However, there are many philosophies and programs that have been proposed and used in the elusive quest for increased quality. One of the more recent (and more successful) attempts at formalizing the approach to quality improvement is the Six Sigma initiative that was developed at Motorola (and later adopted in many other companies).

Identify a company that uses the Six Sigma quality improvement program other than the ones discussed in the textbook or the lecture pages (also, do not use the same company that you analyzed in W1 project, and that you will be discussing again in W3 project). For this company, answer the following questions:

  • What element of the organization’s activities did they use Six Sigma to improve?
  • What caused the company to undertake the Six Sigma initiative?
  • What were the positive results caused by the implementation of Six Sigma improvement processes?
  • Were there any problems associated with attempting to implement Six Sigma within the organization (this does not occur in every organization)?
  • Based on your research about this company and the readings for this week, would you say that Six Sigma is an important area of quality management? If so, why? If not, why not?

The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.

Your posting should be about 1 page (400 to 500 words) in length.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with
    your site. It seems like some of the text in your content are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this

    What you posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you were to write a awesome title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t good, but what if
    you added something to possibly get a person’s attention?
    I mean Operations and Supply Management – Fast Essay is a little vanilla.

    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    post headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related
    video or a picture or two to get readers excited
    about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might make your blog a
    little bit more interesting.

    Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write
    in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience
    and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
    or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
