No, it wont be a problem. Those connection times are standard, and easily managed.

With an arrival time of 10:55 in Interlaken Ost, I am guessing you are travelling from Luzern, most likely arriving on Platform 4 and departing from Platform 5 (check the timetable for these details for your particular trip). If that is the case, Platforms 4 and 5 are two sides of the same platform.

Zweisimmen is a very small station (see picture attached), and 6 minutes is the standard connection time for that station. Practically everyone who gets off the train there will be transferring to the train for Montreux.
