The objective of Six Sigma implementation is to achieve near-complete production in which the number of defects is significantly reduced. However, Six Sigma implementations are certainly not easy as they often require a major overhaul of existing business processes, requiring extensive analysis and documentation.
The use of six sigma tools depend on the type of industry. For example, in industries with high volume transactions, it would be impossible to measure and analyze each transaction. As such, only those devices are used that are designed to identify high value transactions based on predetermined logical parameters. These tools will allow a business to prioritize the improvement of the most important processes that deal with high value transactions.

Such tools are necessary to ensure the success of Six Sigma implementation projects as high-quality levels cannot be attained and until all high-value business processes are used to their full potential. The full potential of a business process can be realized only when it reaches maximum optimization levels or attains Six Sigma quality levels. All this can be achieved by employing the right Six Sigma tools and techniques in the right business process.
To choose the right equipment, businesses have to opt for expert advice from Six Sigma professionals. Although the tools are more or less used by the same type of engineers, supervisors, and other technicians, expert advice is still valued because it is only Six Sigma professionals who know how to use the information generated through Six Sigma tools and techniques appropriately.
