DFSS - Design for Six Sigma

DFSS will drive the next level of efficiency if you have tried Six Sigma and all the other improvement techniques, and havenít seen the improvement you were expecting!

DFSS (Design For Six Sigma) is the most empowering tool for companies that would like to develop  a new product or service that is defect free. DFSS could also be used as a result of a Six Sigma project in that the project is ended because Six Sigma improvement process is not suitable to overcome fundamental design issues.

When applied DFSS prevents all the illnesses that cripple companies. It is designed to eliminate inspecting quality into products and processes. Hence, DFSS tools show you how you build quality right the first time.

DFSS combines many of the tools that are used in Lean and Six Sigma and integrates other tools such as voice of the customer (VOC), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), Reliability and Survival Analysis, Tolerancing, and simulation methods.

As in the case, DFSS deployment is similar to Lean Six Sigma. It uses Yellow Belts, Green Belts, Black Belts, and Master Black Belts in addition to DFSS Champions and executives.

LodeStar Institute DFSS program will show you step by step how you can design your new product or service right the first time and how you can achieve previously unattainable Six Sigma levels for existing products. While Six Sigma tackles products or processes that are already flawed, DFSS aims to create perfect from the start. After successful deployment of DFSS, you will do less and less Six Sigma.
