Question: The calculation of a Sigma level is based on the

The calculation of a Sigma level, is based on the number of defects per million opportunities (DPMO).
In order to calculate the DPMO, three distinct pieces of information are required:
a) The number of units produced
b) The number of defect opportunities per unit
c) The number of defects
The actual formula is:
DPMO = (Number of Defects X 1,000,000)/ ((Number of Defect Opportunities/Unit) x Number of Units)

Six Sigma
Number of defects = 12 
Number of units = 10
Number of opportunities per unit = 60
Manually calculate DPMO. Show all of your work.
Determine Sigma level of performance.
