Tata Steel embarks on Six Sigma

Our Bureau

MUMBAI, Aug. 28

TATA Steel said it has initiated the Six Sigma Black Belt system, a methodology that focuses on moving every process, product and service towards near perfect quality.

According to Tata Steel, this methodology will help the company reduce mistakes in every aspect - product defects, incorrect billing, wasted materials and inefficient production processes.

Tata Steel selected Mr Niloy Mitter for the Six Sigma Black Belt training at Texas, US.

"Six Sigma is the disciplined application of statistical problem-solving tools that show you where wasteful costs are and points you toward precise steps to take for improvement. These tools apply a refined methodology of measurement and discovery to gain a comprehensive understanding and key variables affecting the quality of a company's products and services,'' Tata Steel said in a press release.
