Develop and Design a Defect Free Product at Higher Speed
Chennai : 12-16th March 2018

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a powerful problem-solving methodology aimed at tackling a core issue facing many of today’s products and services – 80 percent of all defects are “designed in.” Design flaws can prevent standard Six Sigma methods such as DMAIC from achieving true Six Sigma levels of performance. Breakthrough improvement requires either the creation of new products, or the redesign of existing ones using DFSS.

Course Description

DFSS for Product Design helps Six Sigma practitioners further their understanding and application of Six Sigma concepts in regard to designing new products. This five day program delivers a thorough education on the DMADV (Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Verify) methodology and helps students master a variety of techniques used to reduce defects during the design processes.

All of the topics covered are universally applicable to the design of any type of product. BMGI’s DFSS training is built around the idea that “Design” is a truly cross-functional undertaking and not the sole responsibility of the “Product Designer.” While statistical design tools are an integral part of this course, the importance of VOC (voice of the customer), financial analysis and supplier selection is also emphasized.

DFSS for Product Design starts with an overview of DFSS and how to capture the voice of the customer, then moves into defining product, system and sub-system requirements. The course agenda is organized into four content areas:

  • Introduction to DFSS and the DMADV methodology
  • Voice of the Customer
  • Launching and leading DFSS projects
  • Quality Function deployment
  • Design of Experiments and Robust Engineering
  • Tolerance Design
  • Mount Carlo Simulation
