Design for Six Sigma

Design for six sigma (DFSS) is a process used in the development of new products or services to ensure that they can be manufactured, or can operate, at Six Sigma levels. The core of the process is understanding the customer requirements. This is achieved by using a number of tools such as the "house of quality". Other statistical tools, similar to those used in traditional six sigma processes, are used to ensure that the product is designed in a way that satisfies the customer's requirements with few (i.e. six sigma) defects.
