DESIGN FOR SIX SIGMA

Six Sigma has revolutionized the ways in which companies meet and beat today's stringent quality expectations. But achieving Six Sigma results first requires Six Sigma building blocks. Design for Six Sigma unveils a systematic methodology for enabling the design of products, services, and processes to meet Six Sigma quality levels.

Designed to be easily read and implemented, this concise Briefcase Book shows managers at all levels how to include Six Sigma at the earliest stages of virtually any manufacturing process. Here are DFSS's techniques for:

  • Optimizing the design process to achieve Six Sigma performance
  • Integrating Six Sigma from the outset of new product development
  • Self-examinations, explanatory sidebars, and chapter-ending checklists
