Design for Six Sigma - DFSS

From process optimization to process engineering – Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) focuses on conducting Critical Parameter management (CPM) and addresses 2 “voices” – 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.

DFSS training is ideal for engineers, designers, interested managers and technicians- all those who would lead or be members of a DFSS project team.

6Sigma.us offers several options:

  • DFSS Yellow Belt (1 day)
  • DFSS Green Belt (3 days)
  • DFSS Black Belt (3 days)
