The Latest Tools and Guidance Needed to Implement Design for Six Sigma in New Product and Service Development!

Hailed as a classic in its first edition, Design for Six Sigma has been fully revised and updated to equip you with everything you need to implement Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) in new product and service development.

The Second Edition of this indispensable design tool retains the core of the previous edition, while adding new information on innovation, lean product development, incomplete DOE, mixture experiments, and alternative DFSS roadmaps―plus new thread-through case studies.

From quality concepts and DFSS fundamentals...to DFSS deployment and project algorithm...to design validation, the updated edition of Design for Six Sigma gives you a solid understanding of the entire process for applying DFSS in the creation of successful new products and services.

Packed with detailed illustrations, careful directions and comparisons, and worked-out calculations, the Second Edition of Design for Six Sigma features:

  • A one-stop resource for developing a sure-fire DFSS program
  • Expert walkthroughs that help readers choose the right design tools at every stage of the DFSS process
  • New to this edition: new chapters on innovation, lean product development, and computer simulation; new material on critical parameter management; new thread-through case studies

Providing real-world product development experience and insight throughout, the Second Edition of Design for Six Sigma now offers professionals in a wide range of industries the information required to maximize DFSS potential in creating winning products and services for today's marketplace.

Filled with over 200 detailed illustrations, the Second Edition of Design for Six Sigma first gives you a solid foundation in quality concepts, Six Sigma fundamentals, and the nature of Design for Six Sigma, and then presents clear, step-by-step coverage of:

THIS WAY TO ROBUST DESIGN AND PRODUCTS!

FOLLOW THE DOTTED LINE TO SIX SIGMA QUALITY

The attraction of Six Sigma is obvious — designs that work, fewer defects in manufacturing, lowered production costs, and greater customer satisfaction. With these pluses, it’s no wonder the world’s leading companies are adopting the Six Sigma approach to product development in ever-growing numbers. Now here’s a powerful engineering resource that makes it easier to implement Six Sigma in new product and service development, one step at a time.

Written by hands-on Six Sigma quality experts -- who write with the excellence Six Sigma can help you achieve in your products and services -- Design for Six Sigma provides unrivalled real-world new product development experience and priceless walkthroughs that help you choose the right design tools at every stage of product development. You get the detailed directions, careful comparisons, and worked-out calculations that make every step easier and make sense of every step.

This trailblazing guide is the only resource that gives product and service designers, project and quality engineers, and Six Sigma trainers a true roadmap to product excellence, from customer requirements to customer satisfaction.

Writing in a clear, easy-to-follow style, the authors provide:
* A systematic method for achieving world-class quality in product development and manufacturing
* Revealing inside-industry case studies
* Groundbreaking comparisons of traditional quality tools with newer approaches
* Focused examinations of engineering tools such as DOE (Design of Experiment), Taguchi Method, Axiomatic Design, and TRIZ (Theory for Inventive Problem-Solving)
* All the information, insights, and knowledge covered by the ASQ Black Belt examination

Starting with basic Introduction to Quality concepts, Design for Six Sigma goes on to deliver in-depth coverage of essential topics such as:
* Fundamentals of Six Sigma
* Basic Six Sigma Statistical Tools
* Fundamentals of Experimental Data
* Taguchi's Robust Parameter Design
* Tolerance Design
* Introduction to Principles of Design
* And much more

You'll also find a list of acronyms and a bibliography.

Worth its weight in gold to any professional interested in the development of robust products, Design for Six Sigma is a tool you'll turn to again and again -- and your quality and productivity is sure to reflect it.
