To start with, the relationship between Six Sigma and HPT at the systematic level is very high (Armstrong & Mitchell, 2008). Similarly, at the systemic level in HPT, the relationship is medium because Six Sigma places much focus on exhaustive analyses to aid in the finding of the cause of a specific problem within a system. Five key steps define the applicability of Six Sigma in different scenarios. These include “define, measure, analyse, improve, and control” or the DMAIC process (Armstrong & Mitchell, 2008).

Therefore, it is obligatory to meet consumer demands to achieve the abovementioned objectives.
