DFSS Methodology Six Sigma in an Enhanced Business Management System: Description and Webinar

An enhanced DFSS methodology Six Sigma is provided in the Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) Business Management System. In IEE, the Define-Measure-Analyze-Design-Verify (DMADV) development project template for Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is integrated with business scorecards and improvement needs.

Enhanced DFSS Methodology Six Sigma: Description

An IEE business management system can integrate DFSS with other business scorecards.  One view for the IEE Business Management System template is the following, where business scorecards that can be reported from  a predictive 30,000-foot-level point of view is under the E-DMAIC measure phase:

In this IEE business management system description, the center portion is an Enterprise DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) roadmap.  For the enterprise improvement, the figure shows a:

  • DFSS roadmap that transitions upward (design project)
  • Project DMAIC that transitions downward (process improvement project)

The webinar link that is provided below provides applications of several lean Six Sigma tools in this IEE DFSS methodology Six Sigma; e.g., voice of the customer and Design of Experiments (DOE).  Discussion is provided, for example, in how DFSS techniques should address voice of the customer (VOC) feedback from an IEE value chain big picture point of view, an enhancement to traditional Quality Function Deployment (QFD) VOC techniques.

Enhanced DFSS Methodology Six Sigma: Webinar

You may hear that Lean Six Sigma is only for the improvement of existing processes. That is not true, it is more versatile, but you may not realize it.

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a requested class by many organizations because they think it is needed to work on any design or research project. You should know that you can work on these processes without taking any additional classes and be successful.

In this webinar we will provide examples of how to re-order the project road map tool sequence in order to use the standard Lean Six Sigma tools to improve design processes and products. Most Lean Six Sigma practitioners do not realize how to apply their tools outside of a typical project to help their organization, and this is a big way to help.
