Attribute Data

Attribute data classifies things into a limited number of possible categories.  The most common attribute data encountered in Six Sigma projects is the simple pass/fail outcome after assessing a product or service variable.

Attribute Data Examples

  • The outcome of a go/no-go test using a functional gage
  • An order that was shipped on-time or late
  • A customer that described their experience as (1) highly satisfying, (2) neutral, or (3) dissatisfying
  • A given project task categorized as “green,” “yellow,” or “red,” based on the estimated time of completion
