Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a business process focused on improving profitability. Properly applied, it generates the right product at the right time at the right cost. Through its use of product and team scorecards, it is a powerful program management technique. DFSS is an enhancement to your new product development process, not a replacement for it. A documented, well-understood and useful new product development process is fundamental to a successful DFSS process. You will be provided with the framework, tools and processes for a proven, superior approach to developing a new product and associated processes from inception to production sign off: DMADV (Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Validate). The course has two complementary goals: (1) Provide all participants with an overview, motivation,and structure for DFSS, and (2) Provide an opportunity for participants who are currently developing a new product or process to apply the DFSS road map to their projects.
