Variability reduction using Six Sigma


  • Low efficiency rate of certain processes or equipment;
  • High reject or non-quality costs;
  • Improvement projects with no medium or long-term results;
  • Loss of control or incapacity to control equipment and processes;
  • Low internal and external client satisfaction rate;
  • No or missing measures and indicators;
  • No adequate Problem Resolution Process (PRP);
  • No or missing expertise to support improvement initiatives;
  • Constant reappearance of the same equipment or process-related problems even after multiple solution trials and efforts.

Our Approach

The objective is to optimize operation costs and performance processes studied by the application of the Six Sigma methodology, from which new working techniques will be applied.

The mandate is to realize a Six Sigma intervention with an employee team to analyze and optimize the performance parameters of a process.

The DMAIC five-step approach is used:

  1. Define;
  2. Measure (the CURRENT state)
  3. Analyze (performance parameters relationship)
  4. Innovate (process optimization)
  5. Control (master future improvements)

Anticipated Results

  • Control the root cause of the non-performance;
  • Rapid increase of the efficiency of activities;
  • Implementation of a performance and measuring culture;
  • Improvement of client satisfaction and services;
  • Improvement of the quality of products and services;
  • Reduction of the rejection rate;
  • Increase of the performance processes both at the plant and administrative levels.

For the corporation that wants to reduce and control its operations variability and distinguish itself by increasing the efficiency of its operational process.
