Design for Lean Six Sigma for Product Development

SSPI DFSS combines design analysis (e.g. requirements cascading) with design synthesis (e.g. process engineering) within the framework of the deploying company's product development systems. Emphasis is placed on CTSs (Critical-To-Satisfaction requirements, a.k.a Big Y's) identification, optimization and verification using the transfer function and scorecard vehicles.

A transfer function in its simplest form is a mathematical relationship between the CTSs and/or their cascaded Functional Requirements (FRs) and the critical influential factors (called the X's). Scorecards help predict risks to the achievement of CTSs or FRs by monitoring and recording their mean shifts and variability performance.

SSPI DFSS is a disciplined and rigorous approach to product design by ensuring that new designs meet customer requirements at launch. It is a design approach that ensures complete understanding of development steps, capabilities and performance measurements by using scorecards, transfer functions, and tollgate reviews to ensure accountability of all the design team members, Black Belt, Project Champions, and Deployment Champions and the rest of the organizations.
