Training: Design:: Design for Six Sigma - Product Design
Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a powerful problem solving methodology aimed at tackling core product development issues.
DFSS is built around the idea that design is a truly cross functional undertaking. No longer is it the sole responsibility of a Product Designer.
While the course focuses on statistical design tools, it also emphasizes project management and includes an in-depth discussion of topics such as listening to and understanding the customer, financial analysis and supplier selection.
- How to design new products using the DMADV methodology.
- When to use DMADV over the Six Sigma DMAIC process.
- How to complete financial assessments and risk analysis projects.
- Practical applications of DFSS tools.
- Design of Experiments (DOE).
- Product tolerance analyses including Monte Carlo Simulation.
- How to properly analyze reliability data.
- How to describe the principles of Design for Manufacturer and Assembly (DFMA).
- How to select appropriate maintenance strategies for products.
- What the overlapping areas between Lean and DFSS are and when to use each one to your advantage.
This program helps Six Sigma practitioners apply DFSS concepts so that they can foresee and eliminate potential defects before and during the design process.
This five-day program delivers a thorough education on the DMADV (Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Verify) methodology and is designed to help students master a variety of techniques for the design process.
Who should attend:
