While many larger corporations have used the concepts of six-sigma to improve the quality of their goods and services, it is observed that small and medium sized enterprises (SME) have not adopted this quality management principle. Six-sigma implementation has also different significantly based on the organization's location around the world. This paper plans to identify the methods and the road map by which SME can implement six-sigma within their organization while encountering the least number of hurdles.

From the Paper:

"This project will attempt to present a theoretical as well as practical viewpoint of the critical factors that affect the success of six-sigma implementation within a SME in the Southeast Asia region. The structure of this project will be focused on evaluating critically within the methodology of six-sigma and the quality culture and methods used of the organization. It is assumed that the implementation of these factors can help aid and guide and SME during the implementation process within the organization, but other aspects of the internal value and culture of the organization should also be considered prior to implementing any of the plans. In most cases, it is paractically impossible due to physical, cost or time constraints to classify the needs and wants of all the individuals in the set from which some study is to be conducted. Some level of generalization is made as a result and companies should be able to identify the factors that are best suited to their organization."
