Abstract

Purpose: aims the study to show How to be can to enhance measurement management by incorporating a risk-based approach and the six sigma method into a more thorough assessment of metrological performance.

 

Theoretical framework: Recent literature has recorded good results in analyzing the impact of Six Sigma and risk management on the energy sector (Barrera García et al., 2022) (D'Emilia et al. 2015). However, this research came to validate and emphasize the most comprehensive assessment of metrological performance by integrating Risk management based approach and Six Sigma analysis.

 

Design/methodology/approach: This study was conducted in Iraqi petroleum refining companies. System quality is measured in terms of sigmas, and two indices—one for actualizing metrological risk and another for its management—are assessed.

 

Findings: We find the all dimensions of the six sigma projects implemented facilitate the correction and adaptation of the main tasks aimed at improving the measurement management system.

 

Research, Practical & Social implications: a risk-based approach and the six sigma method are can enhance the measurement management system and collect feedback on its performance.

 

Originality/value: The merge a risk-based approach and the six sigma method its usefulness as a methodological tool for enhancing measurement management has been demonstrated.
