Giorgio Eugenio Oscare Giacaglia, Sergio Henrique de Faria

Abstract


Companies are continuously increasing quality in their production processes, improving customer satisfaction and reducing cost, in order to remain competitive in their niche market, Six Sigma becomes a key method to be introduced generating a continuous improved production process. This action research evaluated the cost of rework of rejected batches, on a mobile phone plant, throughout 2014. Continuous improvement in the process was applied by means of Six Sigma methodology, so that cost could be reduced. It was found that the objective was achieved, resulting in a cost reduction to rework batches rejected by 50 %. Other tools were used, including, Brainstorming, Pareto Diagram, Gage R & R and Poka Yoke. Continued DSTE study and its implementation were approved and a continuous monitoring process was implemented.Improvement, Lot rejected, Quality, Rework, Six Sigma.
