In order to redesign an existing process or design a new process, success is dependent on a rigorous process and methodology. Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) ensures that there are minimal defects in the introduction of new products, processes, or services.

7 Tools For Effective Performance Management

Course Objective

Design For six sigma focuses on conducting Critical Parameter management (CPM) and addresses Voice of the Customer and Voice of the Process– which must be understood to minimize redesign and design rework. This is done to identify the few variables that dominate the development of baseline performance, the optimization of robust performance and the certification of capable performance.

Benefits of Attending

DFSS methodology is used to design robust products, processes, or services right the first time by using the voice of the customer to meet Six Sigma performance. Robust designs are insensitive to variation and provide consistent performance in the hands of the customer.

DFSS is used to meet customer needs by understanding their requirements, considering current process capability, identifying and reducing gaps, and verifying predictions to develop a robust design. Reduce Design Process Complexity: Disciplined design
process approach leads to lesser complexities and easier integration of geographically separated design groups. Robust and Reliable Design: DFSS methodology makes the design more robust and increase its reliability and reduce post-pilot design changes.
Improve Quality & Reduce Waste: Improve at least one sigma gain in quality launch over the previous design. Improve Time to Market: Reduce time to market from 25-40%.

Increase Cost Savings: Leads to 20-40% savings in cost due to increased design capabilities, better utilization of recourses and reduction in warranty costs. Increase Brand Loyalty: Increase in initial customer satisfaction due to reduced earlier-life failures.
