Abstract:

"Achieving Six Sigma - the near-perfect rate of only 3.4 defects per million - is top priority for leaders of every successful organization who want to dramatically cut costs and increase profits and customer satisfaction. Jack Welch credits this quality management strategy for GE's phenomenal success. But even with excellent Six Sigma implementation, most companies can still only achieve up to Five Sigma - not enough in today's ultracompetitive business landscape.".

"Changing a design after a product launch - and not during the development stage - can cost a company a thousand times more. Design for Six Sigma, or DFSS, attacks a company's problems at the product and process development stage - eliminating errors before they are introduced to market - and incorporates the voice of the customer for quality products and increased profits." "In Design for Six Sigma, leading quality expert and author Subir Chowdhury explains this revolutionary, five-step process in accessible language for managers and practitioners across all functions."--BOOK JACKET.
