Six Sigma


Definition

Six Sigma seeks to identify and resolve the causes of defects and errors in engineering and business processes.

It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization who are experts in these methods.

Each 6 Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets.


History

Motorola developed 6 Sigma in response to a challenge from their management to reduce product failures.

At it's core, it is a set of practices that improves processes through defect reduction.

Although, Motorola is credited with the creation of the practices, many believe they evolved from earlier methodologies like, Quality Control and Zero Defects.


Key Concepts

The goal is to improve customer satisfaction and profitability through the reduction of defects.

  • Everything is a process
  • All processes have an inherent variable
  • The data is used to interpret the variability which is used to drive process improvement


The framework for this improvement are

  • Define
  • Measure
  • Analyze
  • Improve
  • Control



Six Sigma and SCM

Much in the same way that SCM helps in supporting CMM and CMMI, SCM best practices a provide strong foundation in supporting continuous process improvements.

In addition, 6 Sigma will help in identifying weak and problem areas in you SCM processes.

6 Sigma.us offers courses, training and certification in Green Belt, Black Belt, Master Black Belt, Champion and Lean 6 Sigma certification.

Software Development Process

Software Development Processes are standards that a Software Development Team uses to help manage, control and report on their software development.

Here are some very typical SDP Steps:

  • Plan
  • Define
  • Construct
  • Test
  • Deploy

Software Engineering Best Practices

There are many Software Engineering Best Practices.

Here are some of the more commonly used SE Best Practices

  • Iteratively Develop Software
  • Actively Manage Specifications and Requirements
  • Develop and Leverage Component-based Software
  • Continuously Review and Improve your Software Development Practices
  • Verify and Quantify Software Quality
  • Manage Software Change

Definition of Information Technology Table of Contents

Definition of Information Technology Definition of Information Technology describes the primary function of Information Technology. Along with the scope of IT Services and Technologies provides to the Information Technology Services Customers.

Cloud Computing Cloud Computing is the use of Internet computer and software technologies to provide a variety of computer services. It is more than virtual servers. It is a way to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel, or licensing new software. The name Cloud comes from the common diagram of the Internet as it is often depicted in computer network diagrams.

Disaster Recovery The purpose of this page is to establish a standard for disaster recovery for systems, applications and their configurations.
