Design For Six Sigma Green Belt Training

Design For Six Sigma Green Belt Training

New Generation Design For Six Sigma ® Method

Target Group: 
Engineers, scientists, engineers and technicians from research and development, production planning, manufacturing and quality management from manufacturing and service companies.

Training Goal:

Understand customer requirements and translate them to develop new products and new processes.
Involves the customer indirectly at every stage of the development process from research to development and production to marketing.
Avoid products being developed at the market by.


On the subject:

Although many companies use Six Sigma, there are few companies that know DFSS methodology. It is the logical addition or part of a Six Sigma strategy to secure the development process for products and processes. This is today even more relevant, since our experience the goal of many companies is to stabilize the time to market without sacrificing robust, cost-effective and innovative products / processes.

In the future, companies which will be able to transfer robust and innovative products into robust and innovative production processes while complying to the time to market deadlines, will be able to increase their productivity significantly. The goal of bringing products to the market with short ramp-up times, allowing them to start products at different production sites at the same time, and the goal to reduce the production and product costs will only be achieved with a methodology that makes the goal comprehensible and measurable. This will be achieved with Design For Six Sigma (DFSS).

"New Generation Design For Six Sigma®" (DFSS) method leads to a higher degree of certainty in terms of time and to a significant increase in the productivity of the development process. By deliberately reducing the variation in product properties during the utilization phase, variation in the production process and the component variation, as well as the errors in the field and in the production process, the new generation DFSS helps to secure customer satisfaction.

The focus of the "New Generation Design For Six Sigma ®" (DFSS) is on the safeguarding of the fundamental and generic functions of the products and processes. It is one of the most effective methods available to reduce product / process costs, improve product / process quality while minimizing development cycles.


Studies show that the development quality affects more than 70% of the product costs over the product life cycle.

The Six Sigma goal leads to unusual successes in eliminating problems encountered in manufacturing or in the administrative processes. The robustness strategy and the innovative design tools iTools ® supplement "New Generation Design For Six Sigma®" in error prevention and optimize the product design and the manufacturing process.
