I'm not a statistical expert, so mine is a laymans answer. My official response is to recommend posting this in the Statistical Techniques and 6 Sigma page, as I think the statistical gurus can do it better justice. My other unofficial answer is that I think the inventor of the concept probably had a lot to do with it. I'm not well versed on those peoples names (Deming, Shewhart, and so forth).
