Produce a quality product is not required at high cost | Origin of Six Sigma

Posted in Lean Six Sigma

Six Sigma was first discussed in 1979, during a meeting to discuss about the quality of the Motorola company. At the management meeting that a named executive Art Sundry states “The real problem at Motorola Is That our quality stinks!”. This is the birth of a new round of six sigma that found an association between high quality and cost improvement is lower.

At that time companies in the U.S. believe that to create a quality product required a higher cost. But Motorola has realized that there is a way where if the manufacturing process is done properly then to produce a quality product is not required at high cost. Motorola finally prove to produce high quality products should reduce production costs.
