Abstract

Construction industry is suffering from issue of low productivity of labours and poor performance due to quality issues. Projects are getting delayed due to rejection of constructed components which are not meeting with the specifications. Concept of Six Sigma is a statistical problem solving methodology which is a powerful tool of Lean Construction to reduce defects by ensuring the quality. In this study, DMAIC approach of Six Sigma was applied on three items of construction: Flooring, Brickwork and Plastering. Sigma level was calculated for these items on construction projects and was observed as 2.75 for flooring work, 1.90 for brickwork and 2.60 for plastering work. After applying steps of improve and control stage of Six Sigma, it was observed that average improvement in sigma level was 12.7% for flooring work, 42% for brickwork and 19.2% for plastering work. Construction industry needs to apply the tool of six sigma to improve the quality of construction. This will help the contractor to improve overall quality of the whole structure and will also reduce the problems of maintenance in the future.
