Six Sigma is a business management method, which today enjoys widespread application in many sectors of industry.
Six Sigma seeks to improve products or processes by identifying and removing the root causes of defects and errors that prevent meeting customer needs. It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within an organization ("Black Belts" etc.) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (cost reduction or profit increase). Design for Six Sigma is a sister methodology used to develop new products and processes.
Axioneering is a new training and consulting firm focusing on Six Sigma, the set of methodologies aimed at improving and developing breakthrough products and processes. Its principal, Alex Christodulidis, has a proven track record practicing Six Sigma since 2001 in different capacities including Black Belt, Lead Master Black Belt, and Project Sponsor. Mr. Christodulidis has taught and applied DMAIC and Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) in the areas of product design, manufacturing, logistics, accounting, and enterprise risk management.
