Design for Sixsigma (DFSS)

Seminar Content

This 5 days course is AIAG approved training. The training explains the core knowledge of DFSS as well implementation process and tools application. DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) is the important methodology applied in new product design process, which is based on the data analysis and statistic and combined with creativity skills and robust design. It starts from the adequate identification of customer requirements and converts to corresponding engineering matrix and specifications, and then optimizes and standardizes the design to ensure the flawless product or service delivery to market.

Who Should Attend

Top management of Design Function, R&D Director/Manager, Product Manager, Project Manager, Quality Manager, Design Engineer, Six Sigma BB/GB and any Product/Service Design Related Staff.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive extensive DFSS training material. The certificate will be issues per training and test evaluation per Omnex requirements.
