The theme of six-sigma is to minimize the number of defects. A local establishment is a renowned multi-dimensional business establishments ranging from aviation machinery, equipment to travel agencies, tour operation, transportation products to beverages, and the company has a pretty wide business domain. The paper will focus on the technical division and will analyze the need of improvement and what can be done using the six-sigma approach. It is believed that the six-sigma implementation in aviation equipment will significantly reduce the loss by lowering the number of defects.
