Design for Six Sigma is one of the more complex methodologies in process improvement, applied to engineering to improve product development, reduce risks, and develop proper specifications and tolerances. Most companies take on DfSS only after they have worked through most of their customer, supplier and internal inefficiencies. Although it involves some similar tools, and some new tools, wrapping it all together into an easy to understand process is critical.
We feel we have been able to develop a product that keeps the concepts simple for any company, regardless of their Six Sigma maturity. Since DfSS involves commitment from many different organizations (Sales/Marketing, Purchasing, Design Engineering, Manufacturing, Service/Support), it is often a tough sell to get it implemented.
By using our material, we feel you will be able to explain it simplistically for the leadership level, yet provide enough details and examples to help the technical experts understand the approach.
Training your company has just become easier! For only $9.99, you will be able to train anyone in your company on the concepts of implementing an optimized design and development process.
How long would it take you to develop your own course? Weeks? Months? Unless you can develop a similar course in less than an hour, this course will pay for itself at least one hundred times over!
The course is yours to keep. Feel free to edit, change or modify however you want, or don’t change a thing and teach directly from our material. There are a total of 124 slides, so plan on a 4 hour class.
No recurring costs, no “per student” charge, and no special software to download. Your employees can refer back to it anytime they like. Send it in a global email to everyone in your company, if you’d like!
Don’t spend thousands of dollars hiring a consultant to come in and speak in general terms. Use your knowledge of your company’s major design and development problems to elaborate on the material we have put together. Add some specific company issues or examples, to really bring the concepts home. Unless you can show how these concepts relate to actual issues that your employees deal with, you will have a hard time making much of an improvement in the way problems are viewed, and ultimately resolved.
We have done all the hard work for you, so just follow these simple steps…
- Download the Powerpoint course from our website (did we mention it was only $9.99)
- Edit the master slide with your company logo
- Skim the speaker notes, maybe add a few of your own company specific examples
- Start training your company!
The course is divided into some key sections:
- Introduction and Overview – What is a root cause, why is it important to identify, and why we don’t always get there.
- What is Six Sigma? – Review of concepts and terminology
- What is Design for Six Sigma? – Why is it needed, benefits, cost avoidance
- Key Aspects – Resource allocation, CTQs, Voice of the Customer (VOC), Design for X, Customer data, Concurrent engineering, variation, robust design, process thinking
- DMADV – Methodology and tools for completing a successful project, phase gates
- DfSS Tools – Tools as they align with DMADV – Charters, benchmarking, QFD (detailed example), MSA, Kano Model, Capability, Scorecard, TRIZ, FMEA, Regression (detailed example), Design of Experiments (DOE – detailed example), Pugh Concept, Mistake Proofing, Transfer Functions, Monte Carlo, Multi-Vari, SPC, Control Plan
- Summary – recap of material, references
