Motorola developed the main principles of the system in 1986, extensively utilizing methodologies such as Quality Control, Total Quality Management and Zero Defect, and pioneers such as Shewhart, Deming, Juran, Ishikawa, Taguchi. Motorola, Honeywell and GE were the first implementers of the system.
Borusan Group has been implementing this methodology since 2002.
With the 6 Sigma methodology - an important aspect of Borusan’s strategic management model, Borusan manages to achieve financial growth and increase in profitability while also realizing a cultural transformation.
