Industrial Engineering/Quality Control
A road map for successful deployment of DFLSS within any organization and for any product or service
Here is a unique approach to Design for Lean Six Sigma (DFLSS). First, it offers readers a structured road map with descriptions of the essential concepts, tools, and techniques for design in an engineering and a service context. Second, it combines the important concepts of Design for Six Sigma, an approach that reduces operational variation and defects, with concepts of Lean, an approach that helps eliminate waste and shortens cycle time. The result is Design for Lean Six Sigma (DFLSS), the integration of two exceptional forces in order to fuel any organization's drive for operational excellence, innovation, world-class quality, and growth.
The two authors are Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belts. Their advice is based on many years of hands-on experience advising and assisting organizations in implementing successful DFLSS strategies. With the aid of numerous illustrations and actual case studies, these authors help you:
Understand and systematically deploy DFLSS methodologies
Reduce development time and unanticipated setbacks
Bring innovative, market-driven products to market
Minimize complexity while developing flexible, modular designs
Maximize robustness to avoid functional failures
Maximize return on investment by effectively integrating processes, knowledge, and people
Whether your organization produces a product or a service, you can depend on this book's holistic approach to DFLSS to energize your organization's innovation process and perfect its ability to develop and introduce new products and services.
