It is seen that most Green Belt professionals do not use it while they have been trained on it. What are the key reasons for lack of use of this powerful family of statistical tests?

  19. Six Sigma is a powerful methodology that can be used to improve business processes. It is a structured approach to problem-solving that can be applied to any process - manufacturing, sales, marketing, IT, BPO, accounting, purchasing, you name it. All processes have variation. Variation is the cause of all evil - it leads to defects and customer dissatisfaction. Six Sigma methodology can be used to reduce variation from any source and thus improve costs, quality, and hence customer satisfaction. The standard methodology that is used to improve existing processes is called DMAIC. The acronym

Now my question is what is the metric I have to consider? Shall I take calorie consumption per day and calorie expended per day. Note: the 85kg man should have average calorie consumption per day (accpd) should be 2300kcal for maintaining his weight. When the weight reduces the accpd also r
