Resumen

Seis Sigma es actualmente una de las herramientas más potentes para la mejora de la calidad. Concebida para procesos productivos muy repetitivos y de gran volumen de producción, ha sido adoptada por las principales grandes organizaciones de todo el mundo en muchos sectores. Nuestro objetivo es estudiar su aplicabilidad en pymes, con bajos volúmenes de producción, e identificar los principales factores de éxito y obstáculos para su implementación. Se ha empleado la metodología “investigación en acción” en una pyme del sector aeronáutico, aplicando el ciclo de mejora DMAIC a un proyecto Seis Sigma concreto. Los resultados confirman su aplicabilidad y sugieren que el éxito depende de factores claves como el compromiso del equipo, la disponibilidad de recursos y la formación previa.
