Understanding the overall basics of DFSS training

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) focuses on carrying out Critical Parameter Management (CPM) and addresses 2 “voices” – Voice of the Customer and Voice of the course – which must be implicit to reduce redesign and design rework. This is done to recognize the few variables that govern the expansion of baseline performance, the optimization of vigorous performance and the certification of competent performance.
DFSS training is ideal for designers, interested managers, engineers and technicians- all those who would lead or be associates of a DFSS project team.
Who Should Take DFSS training?
DFSS Certification course partakers must be Black Belts certified and are required to come to class with no less than one project that will be accomplished over a 12- to 18-month period.
Benefits of this training:
• Ability to guide teams in creating new products, services or processes to attain high levels of performance.
• Capability to lead groups in repairing existing products, processes, or services to accomplish high levels of performance.
• Ability to collect accurate and comprehensive customer requirements, decipher those requirements into design factors, and then optimize settings for those design parameters through testing and replication.
• Ability to lead and/or assist pioneering projects while developing vigorous breakthrough designs for products, processes and services, and that perform perfectly on launch.
Course requirements:
• Attendance at all 10 days of classroom training.
• One or more projects that can be finished within 12-18 months from the start of training.
Black Belt Certification; expertise in the core Lean Six Sigma tools
• Windows-based laptop computer with a CD-ROM (contributor must have access to the laptop all through the training)
• Minitab v.16 (loaded on laptop prior to attending training)
