The University of Utah online DFSS course is designed for experienced Lean Six Sigma Practitioners. It is STRONGLY recommended that you have your Black Belt or Green Belt in Lean Six Sigma before taking this advanced program in Design for Six Sigma.
Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is not a methodology in and of itself. Rather, DFSS is a set of best practices and tools which, when integrated into a product / service development process, increases your organization’s ability to meet your customers’ requirements in a timely, cost-effective manner.
As the name suggests, DFSS is about design. DFSS saves costs in part because the cost of making a change increases exponentially during the lifecycle of a development project (as shown above).
When you have completed this course, you will have a solid general knowledge of the tools, methods and best practices necessary for developing products and processes that can meet Six Sigma levels of quality.
*The University of Utah also provides a separate course in DFSS for PRODUCT design, and would be taken instead of this course. Please contact us directly if you wish to explore that option.
