The development process of Embedded Software (SW) is gathering interest due to the increased importance of SW in mobile products. According to tough competition and the growing size of the Embedded SW, there is a demand for a new effective way to improve the SW development process, based on customer and market quality aspects, rather than focusing on defect removals in individual SW modules. We review 103 SW improvement projects from the area of mobile phones in order to check the effectiveness of Six Sigma which is the standard for the process improvement statistical tools and methods.
