Anyone involved in design or development of new products, services or processes knows the difficulties. Lean or Six Sigma Green and Black Belts are required to be experts in not just DMAIC but also Design for Six Sigma. Learn new tools and the perfect roadmap to make a difference in your business.

Introduce new products and services to market using multi-disciplined teams, robust methodologies and concepts. Reduce wasteful expensive projects, which don’t fill the real needs of your customers, with higher quality and more timely designs which provide the customer with what they want.

DFSS training is perfect for engineers, designers, managers and technicians – all those involved in product, process or service design and development.

Included in this course:

  • Lifetime tutor support

  • Exercises, games, discussion & group work

  • Live Tutor Led
  • Bonus – Online Change Management courses

Course content

This Design for Six Sigma course builds on your existing Lean Six Sigma DMAIC skills and shows you how to adapt them for design projects through the use of the DMADV methodology. It will show how and where your existing DMAIC tools should be used whilst providing training in the DFSS toolset and approach necessary for the design of new products, services and processes.

Define: The course discusses the origins and imperatives of DFSS and will show how the Define phase for DMADV projects differs, yet overlaps, with this phase in DMAIC projects. In particular, it will focus on the Project Charter, and how Change Management is often even more crucial for the success of design projects.
Measure: VOC is even more important for DMADV projects than it is for DMAIC ones, and so the course will explore this topic in more detail, and from a Design perspective. The course will explore tools such as KANO and QFD in some detail.
Analyse: ‘Analyse’ is where design projects differ most significantly from improvement projects and so the course focuses significantly here. The Analyse Phase is where design concepts are created, prioritised and selected. It is where the design architecture is identified, interfaces are managed and requirements laid out. The DMAIC Belt will find a few new and exciting tools presented here such as TRIZ, Axiomatic Design and Design Score Cards.
Design and Validate: These Phases in the DMADV methodology revolve around testing and optimising the design, and so many of the more data analysis, model building and experimental methodologies and tools will be discussed here. Much of these will be familiar to the DMAIC Belt but difficult concepts will be revised and practiced, always from the design perspective. Tools such as Graphical analysis, Hypothesis testing, Regression and DOE will be discussed
Key topics include:

  • What is DFSS?
  • Why is DFSS important?
  • When to use DFSS?
