Design for Six Sigma

Is your organization having product development issues? Are these adversely affecting your business? Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) methodologies focus on preventing and removing defects before and during design, resulting in improved business performance and profitability.

Learn how to apply Design for Six Sigma’s DMADV (DEFINE MEASURE-ANALYZE-DESIGN-VERIFY) model to the design or redesign of your products,services, and processes to increase speed to market, reduce cycle time, and improve customer and employee satisfaction. Design projects deliver substantial improvement in the overall organizational performance, particularly in the area of customer satisfaction.
