Enhanced Troubleshooting: KT and Six Sigma

Six Sigma is about “Common Cause” problems, where factors inherent to the product or the process cause deviations over time. Think of any machine—all machines produce heat and all machines vibrate.

Six Sigma attempts to isolate those inherent sources of variation, and to reduce them.
