Learn tools, techniques, and proven implementation strategies for Design for Six Sigma while obtaining your DFSS Black Belt. 

What is Design for Six Sigma (DFSS)

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a revolutionary methodology for new product and service development.  DFSS starts with a careful examination of market requirements, then translating these requirements effectively into product technical requirements.  DFSS drives the team to achieve a clear focus on those requirements that will truly make a difference in the marketplace.  Once “critical to the customer” requirements have been identified, they are driven to successively lower levels.  Linkage from each requirement level is obtained through the use of transfer functions.  Simultaneously, capability data is ascertained at each design level.  The linkage of requirements and capability data allows the team to predict design quality before launch.  Predictable quality produces timely, glitch-free new product launches.

What is a DFSS Black Belt?
