||What is 6 Sigma?
6 Sigma is a Quality goal, and speaks
to low defects in a product or process. 6 Sigma itself is equal to
about 3.4 defects in every million opportunities. That is a good
goal and a very low number. What is an opportunity for a defect?
That has to be determined by each business. A common definition of
the total opportunities for defects in electronics is the total of
the number of parts in the assembly plus the total of solder connections.
Of course the number of opportunities for defects in other businesses will
But what about knowing your progress on the way to your six sigma goal?
If you currently have 200 defects per million opportunities, how many
sigma would that be? It is normally hard to find that out.
However, the "convert" software from rpsoft 2000 software will do that
conversion for you. This software is able to convert a sigma quality
number to defects per part per million (abbreviated sometimes dpm or
sometimes simply ppm). Also, it will do the reverse of that, and
convert defects per parts per million into Sigma. While the equation
to do this is complex, "convert" from rpsoft 2000 software is easy to use.
