Design For Six Sigma

Design For Six Sigma (DFSS)

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is used across many industries, and has the goal of determining the needs of customers and implementing those into the product solution. It focuses on product and/or process design, as opposed to process improvement. DFSS emphasizes the customer needs and how it influences the design decision.

Six Sigma methodologies may not be enough to ensure a defect-free outcome. DFSS is the solution, helping to avoid manufacturing and service issues by using sophisticated techniques at the beginning. Incorporating the needs and desires of the customer, this process ultimately leads to improved customer satisfaction and increased revenue.
