I was quite curious to know how actually we can implement DFSS in an organization so i did a few readings to know more about the implementation process when it comes to DFSS , organizations should emphasize the responsibility for implementation and financial accountability . Stressing the importance of DFSS , company management should emphasize the importance of being faithful to the DFSS process. This means that the ' meticulous and disciplined use of DFSS tools like QFD to understand the voice of the customer and translate that voice into meaningful parameters that engineers and professionals to better understand , and the likes of other DFSS tools such as transfer functions (s ie , models ) , expected value analysis , robust / parameter design, tolerance allocation , sensitivity analysis , and more. If companies do not want to use the DFSS tools, not reap the benefits. It's so simple.
Implementing DFSS , you have to have faith that if we use these powerful tools , which eventually reap the rewards. This is what the experience of GE , Lockheed Martin , Seagate , Dupont and others are showing . Unfortunately , there is much happening in the market today indicates that many companies want to avoid the hard work of DFSS and direct access to the savings , which is not a magic potion that will provide savings automatically. Not so . We have some great tools for DFSS in our modern age we did not have before, but if we do not use , we really can not wait for the results . The "new" instruments include having established concepts , have a way to implement them and make them accessible to the masses, that is, through better hardware and the "new " or just software.
Companies talk about wanting a change of culture . But more and more powerful ( as evidenced by the introduction of the horse , the wheel, the printing and the computer as historical evidence ), the change of culture will be ultra slow , no matter how badly we want to change . Breakthrough Improvement will not happen without powerful tools. Thus, in an era that seems to be changing again migrated to the need to feel good about things , in order to effect change , we must remember that the tools are very important and should be used to facilitate change . In the DFSS implementation, responsibility for implementation is as important as the financial responsibility because the use leads to results. In addition, the responsibility for implementation is easier to control.

The Year's starts with Product Excellence Using Six Sigma (PEUSS) module. In this course, we will learn about design for six sigma and how to design and deveop product with very less defects and with the prime focus on customer's requirements. Design for six sigma is a part of six sigma or maybe you can say an extension of our six sigma module.Design for sig sixma follows DMADV process for its operation. So Design for six sigma is an improvement system used to develop new processes or products at six sigma quality levels by focusing on to drive defects less than 3.4 DPMO. DMADV stands for Define Measure Analyse Design and Verify which is also inspired by Deming's Plan Do Check and Act cycle.We use DMADV process when any product or process is not in existance and is new that needs to be developed or when an existing product or process exists and has been optimised and still doesn't meet the level of customer specification or the six sigma level.
