Ford India Integrates Six Sigma
After experiencing remarkable success in quality and efficiency in its many other branches, Ford has decided to expand its usage of the Six Sigma program at its India hub. The company has begun working with the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association of India who began a Six Sigma black belt program in 2003 and has since issued 35 certificates in the region. Vice President of India Ford Vinay K Piparsania has stated that his company has already experienced a “sea world” of difference in the decade since they originally began integrating the process. This personal experience has contributed to the company’s drive to integrate further. Ford India argues that while a full integration of the system would take years if not decades, even minimal integrations have the power to yield quite considerable cost savings. Sify.com Reports:
