The Six Sigma concept was developed by Motorola in 1986 with the stated goal of improving manufacturing processes and reducing product defects and variation. The underlying goal was to achieve near quality perfection with 99.9997% of variable values within specifications.Dataforth has created a Application Note (AN119) to summarize how Six Sigma is calculated and how a company might go about implementing such a system of their own.
