Six Sigma Quality Initiative
Aurus Speciality Company has adopted Six Sigma which can be described as a business process to improve bottom line by designing and monitoring everyday activities in ways that minimises defects while increasing customer satisfaction. Success is measured in number of defects per million opportunities. A Sigma level of 6 indicates only 3.4 defects per million opportunities. Six Sigma provides specific methods to analyse the process so that defects and errors do not arise in the first place. This results in near defect free end products, which increases profitability and customer satisfaction.
