Abstract: This article presents an application of Six sigma into medium sized manufacturing company. Although there is a wider acceptance of Six-Sigma in many organizations today, there is still a lack of in-depth case study of Six sigma in the existing literature. Their production is typically individual for known customer. For the presented research the case study methodology was used. The annual analysis shows that in the company higher importance should be given to non conformity process management. The company decided to reduce waste and improve selected process using Six sigma methodology. Although all corrective and preventive actions have been defined and performed in details in accordance to the Six sigma methodology the final results of performed intervention will be known not earlier than at next annual analysis. Regarding the fact that there is a lack of case studies dealing with Six sigma especially in individual manufacturing this article could be of great importance also for the practitioners. This paper presents a real case study illustrating the effective use of Six sigma methodology to reduce waste in individual manufacturing.
