Lean Six Sigma in Quality/QA Services
Quality management is a recent phenomenon. The idea of quality started with volume production. This related to mass production of the same kind of material without differences. Later, the focus shifted to industrial efficiency. The addition of statistical quality control brought in analysis methods aimed at reducing variation and defects.
In the recent times, quality management concepts and techniques are considered a necessity for everyone in the organization. In many organizations, it is considered better for every function/unit to improve its own quality instead of relying on a central function of quality assurance which is now supposed to have a facilitation role
- Case Study Description
One of the global top three manufacturers of fluorescent lamps found that the number of rejects due to cap defects in tube lights was high. This was primarily due to contamination of cap with cement. Though cap contamination is a visual defect and does not affect the performance of the product, it was found that customers were not willing to buy such a product and this was also affecting the brand image of the company. A six sigma project was taken up with a lofty goal of drastic reduction in this long standing visual defect. After a series of parametric and non parametric analysis followed by experimentation, the project was successfully completed. The cap contamination cases were brought down by more than 50%

Very well designed and well delivered training program. Very interesting way of presentation with ample use of modern training aids. Writing down the key points, and actually building up the concepts step-by-step by writing while teaching, ensured to a very large extent that we were ‘with’ the faculty throughout the sessions, rather than drifting away, as happens in a mere slideshow presentation.

I am from garment manufacturing sector, where very less R & D works were done. Lot of improvements in terms of financial, rejection rate, efficiency, quality can be achieved because in this sector we can see lot of non value added activities are involved. If we implement Six Sigma effectively we can reduce the cycle time to 60-70% lesser than present.
