Six Sigma, developed in 1986 by the Motorola Company for instance, was originally earmarked for use in communications and telephony management. Interestingly, the strategy has found wide application in several other fields including medicine. As of 2010, Six Sigma remained the single most used comprehensive strategy in the management of business operations for output quality improvements. 식스 시그마를 통해서....DMAIC 기본으로 angina라는 주제를 가지고~ 식스 시그마를 자체를 분류하고 그것을 글로 썻습니다. 식스 시그마 블랙 밸트 할 당시 했던 프로 젝트 입니다.

Angina (Angina pectoris) presents as a severe chest pain arising from ischemia or deficiency in blood that causes reduced oxygen supply in the muscles of the heart. The main cause of such obstructed blood flow is a spasm of the coronary arteries. Coronary artery disease caused by atherosclerosis of the cardiac arteries, has widely been associated with incidences of angina. The disease manifests as a stable state angina (often predictable intermittent pain in the chest) or as unstable angina (a new chest pain that occurs at rest and worsens with time). Unstable angina may cause myocardial infarctions that lead to severe heart attack or death.
