Six Sigma is a statistics-based, process-focused, data-driven strategy and methodology, coupled with management concepts and lean tools, that aims to improve the quality of process outputs. Six Sigma seeks to identify the causes of failures and minimize variability in key industrial processes in areas, such as healthcare, manufacturing, and service. IJSSCA aims to publish original research that strengthens the current theoretical base and suggests potential for the advancement of industrial practice.
Topics covered include
