Product Description

From the Back Cover

A powerful program for building new levels of Six Sigma excellence into every process, product, or service

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) allows managers to customize and improve upon Six Sigma, the most renowned, effective business improvement system of the past decade. What is Design for Six Sigma?, the step-by-step user's guide to DFSS, details everything you need to know to seamlessly introduce DFSS to your firm's quality initiative, including:

  • The primary elements of a DFSS project, with specific actions managers must take to implement each effectively
  • The timeline of DFSS, from identifying and clarifying what will be worked on to testing and deploying the new process, product or service
  • Questions you should ask yourself before making the move to DFSS
  • Primary tools and approaches used on virtually every DFSS project, from Kano Analysis to Quality Function Deployment (QFD), Capability Analysis, and more
  • Practical tips for managers championing a DFSS effort as well as teams executing the project

A wide range of industries and companies now rely on Six Sigma methods and principles to boost productivity, realize dramatic cost savings, and create true customer delight. What is Design for Six Sigma? reveals how and why DFSS can help you move beyond Six Sigma, transforming change from a nuisance into a core competency and increasing your assurance that each product, service, or process your firm introduces is customer focused, defect free, and financially successful.

Good stuff to get started. Which way is up kind of information. Very pragmatic. This is the very particular area of six sigma that I'm closing in on. Great starter book.
