Abstract : Process improvement is a key for any company to make profits and improve their quality standards. One of the widely used techniques to do process improvement is by implementation of Six Sigma. In this paper, a Six Sigma analysis was done to reduce the scrap and rework of pistons which are rejected in order to improve the quality and decrease the wastage from money invested. The process variations of skirt diameter and pinhole diameter were controlled by changing a few manufacturing parameters which produced good results.
