Abstract: The study aimed at investigating the effect of six sigma criteria on competitive advantage for Jordanian industrial public shareholding companies. Data was collected from a random sample using a questionnaire specially designed for this purpose. Multiple regression analysis was utilised to test the hypotheses using the stepwise approach. The study revealed that Six Sigma criteria as a whole significantly affect the competitive advantage; and each criterion was significant and explained a significant amount of the variance in a competitive advantage. The findings of the study also showed that Jordanian industrial companies apply Six Sigma criteria at an average level, and they are interested in the competitive advantage at an average level.
