Concept Definition and Explanation


“Design for six sigma” (DFSS) is a powerful approach to designing products, processes and services in a cost-effective and simple manner to meet the needs and expectations of the customer while driving down quality costs. It involves the utilization of powerful and useful statistical tools to predict and improve quality before building prototypes. It is a methodology to make the introduction of new products, processes and services more efficient, reliable and capable of meeting high customer expectations and requirements. DFSS has the potential to simplify design configuration, eliminate non-value added steps or processes in the design of a product or service, and hence reduce material costs, labor costs and overhead costs.
