Application of Six Sigma Method in Quality Improvement of Hard Alloy Gear Circular Saw Blades
According to the quality problems in one saw blade enterprise, six Sigma theory and method are used to improve the quality o f saw blades, and establish the 6σ DMAIC improvement model. Six sigma DMIAC procedures are applied to define the problems and set at target for improvement, the main quality are investigated， and measurement systems and process capability are evaluated. Then, we set a specific program for the improvements. At last, the project is successfully implemented, result shows that failure rate reduced to 0.3%, DPMO dropped below 160, and the process capability is improved largely.
