Six Sigma

Less Variability to Aim for Total Quality

Total Quality Management (TQM) is a customer- and market-oriented approach of tools and methodologies to improve the products and services provided by a company.

The strength of TQM, which originated in Japan, is to create a common base and a binder between all the techniques and tools that approach the world of quality (Deming Model, Crosby Model, Juran Model, Ishikawa Model, EFQM Model) up to the most recent and innovative Six Sigma.

In its purest form, Six Sigma aims at harnessing the principles and tools of statistical science to reduce business risks, on all levels of an organisation, from four different perspectives:

  • At its highest level, it is a strategic vision that embodies business success.
  • Secondly, it can be seen as a tactical project management system that optimises the control functions of a commercial or industrial enterprise.
  • Thirdly, Six Sigma is a scientific approach aimed at minimising and eliminating forms of business risk commonly associated with the operation of critical processes.
  • As a final point of view, Six Sigma is a philosophy of thinking that combines the power of deductive reasoning with the benefits commonly associated with data-driven decision-making.

The concept behind Six Sigma is that, once the defects in a process have been measured, it is possible to systematically identify how to eliminate them with the aim of striving for “zero defects” as far as possible. This corresponds to the six sigma quality level of 3.4 parts per million (ppm).

In projects tackled following the Lean Six Sigma methodology, concepts and tools of each of the two improvement strategies (Lean and Six Sigma) are combined together following the DMAIC approach: Defining, Measuring, Analysing, Implementing and Controlling, giving maximum results in improving processes in terms of both efficiency and quality.

When applied correctly, the Lean Six Sigma methodology leads to tangible results of increased productivity and profitability and increases the corporate culture towards improvement with rigour and rationality: the economic benefits can be estimated in the order of 2-3% of turnover with peaks of up to 10%.

CONSIDI deploys its professionalism both in the direct management of Lean Six Sigma and Total Quality projects in the company and in the organisation of distinctive training courses thanks to teaching methods in which emphasis is placed on the practical side.
