In the year 2007, CII established a National Award on Six Sigma to recognize organizations which have successfully adopted and implemented the Six Sigma techniques resulting in improvement in processes. The CII-Six Sigma Awards are given in an annual conference organized by the CII Institute of Quality (CII-IQ).
Every year, CII-IQ organizes the National Six Sigma Competition, annually, and invites organizations to participate in the same and present successful case studies. An eminent Jury evaluates the presentation with respect to pre-determined criteria and identifies the Award Winners.
The objectives of the CII Six Sigma Award Competition are:
? to showcase successful case studies done through Six Sigma techniques by different organizations/ individuals in India which have resulted in improvement in processes
? to provide opportunity for delegates to learn key / best practices through the successful case studies and interact with six sigma practitioners for hands-on usage of the techniques.
The Award Competition is organized in the following four categories:
1. Discrete Manufacturing
2. Bulk Materials
3. Utility Sector
4. Transactional processes
One best case study from each of the above categories is identified and presented the Award for the BEST SIX SIGMA PROJECTS.
