Against this background, let us examine the evolution of total quality improvement processes (or in a broader sense Operational Excellence) from Ad hoc Improvement to TQM to Six Sigma to Lean Sigma. Building on the success factors of these processes the key question is: How do we sustain the results? The author has named this sustainable process as FIT SIGMA™ (see Basu and Wright, 2003). What is FIT SIGMA™? 4 defects in 1 000 000. Now implement this across your business with an intensive education and training programme.

Taguchi, an electrical engineer, used an experimental technique to assess the impact of many parameters on a single output. His method was developed during his work of rebuilding the Japanese telephone system in the 1970s. His approach to quality control is focused on ‘off line’ or loss of function (derived from telephone system failures). The Taguchi approach is to: ● ● Determine the existing quality level measured in the incidence of down time – which he called ‘off line’. Improve the quality level by parameter and tolerance design.

Of the Japanese approaches to quality, Taguchi methods have been the most widely adopted in America and Europe.
