INTRODUCTION
An automotive manufacturing industry aims at meeting the customer requirement by providing the good quality of product. So many company focus to reach the global market in satisfying the customer demand. Quality of the product is achieved by minimization of rework, reducing scrap rate and minimizing man hour on rework. Rejections in automotive industry occur due to not placing the product for required specification. Now a day’s rework of rejected parts are common but rework add losses to the company net profit, if the company is a continuous mass production where the products go through a series of process to come out with final product. Piston head manufacturing travels through a sequence of manufacturing and

MOE and A.B ABU [3] in this paper, it uses the six sigma approach in defect reducing in automobile industry. The six sigma processes like define, analysis, measure, improve and control are applied. This study includes tools like quality management tools such as Pareto analysis, data analysis, cause and effect diagram and design of experiments. This study aims at finding out the root cause to problem and providing solution .This paper highlighted the cause foe product rejection rate. This paper aims at reducing rejection rate from 38% to 13%. Hence six sigma approach was effective in reducing the defect.
