In essence, Six Sigma is a methodology originally designed for manufacturing to understand and reduce sources of variability. This can also be called margin of error when performing any operation or manufacturing of product. When we implement six sigma in facilities management and maintenance it relates to keeping all activities and/or operations to optimum working condition. When applied to facilities management, the concept has been to maximize the uptime of equipment to make them as reliable as possible. Six Sigma Practices try to accomplish this by establishing and enforcing basic business practices. The intention of this document is to provide a guideline that will provide step by step tools and actions on how to make every process more efficient. The scope of the design project is to use Six Sigma methodology to reduce the quantity of overtime hours that has to be worked when having multiple projects running at the same time with limited personnel to work on it.
