That said, if your firm deals with the FDA, there are a number of aspects in the book that correlate perfectly with the FDA's Quality by Design initiative to encourage pharmaceutical and medical device companies to build safety and efficacy into their products from Day One on the drawing table rather than toward the end in clinical trials. Specifically, you'll find the PIDOV (Plan, Identify, Design, Optimize, Validate) methodology helpful, as well as the CtQ (Critical to Quality) concept.
If your firm already uses Six Sigma in manufacturing and operations, this book will give you enough information to make the decision if you want to implement Six Sigma earlier in your product development cycle.
As an overview, this book is targeted at managers and senior executives, and should not be mistaken for a "how-to" manual.
