Here is a question I honestly don’t know the answer to. Do companies in Japan use Six Sigma?
When I say Six Sigma I am referring to someone following the standard DMAIC roadmap in attempts to reduce variation, defects, etc. More advanced users may also be using Design for Six Sigma in which case they could be using the DMADV or IDOV roadmaps.
We all know many (not all) companies in Japan use variations of lean and TPS… but what about Six Sigma? If you have any idea please chime in by clicking on the comments link below. Thanks in advance.
