  6. 6. DfSS: A Growth Strategy <ul><li>Design for Six Sigma is the result of an evolution, not a singular event. </li></ul><ul><li>Invest and reward during paper and electrons rather than tooling. </li></ul><ul><li>Leadership commitment and alignment of rewards are essential. </li></ul><ul><li>Leadership direct involvement is the only force that will establish the momentum to embed Design for Six Sigma into the organization for the long term. </li></ul>
  7. 7. DfSS : A Way to Serve Customers <ul><li>Customers should be involved from the beginning and an integral part of all activity throughout the product lifecycle. </li></ul><ul><li>Design for Six Sigma should be managed like any other project or program with plans, budgets and schedules established in advance. </li></ul><ul><li>Product development is an enterprise activity. </li></ul>
  8. 8. DfSS Product – Process Fusion <ul><li>Drive design and process together. </li></ul><ul><li>Partner with major suppliers during the design process. </li></ul><ul><li>Design for Six Sigma reduces variability introduction to the factory floor. </li></ul><ul><li>Metrics must be publicly displayed in every area. </li></ul><ul><li>Design and production must be balanced </li></ul>
  9. 9. The DfSS Engineering Organization <ul><li>Design team demographics slow change and evolution . </li></ul><ul><li>Managing a Six Sigma Enterprise requires a change of philosophy and conventional wisdom. </li></ul><ul><li>The culture change requires a change in the engineering hierarchy and composition of design teams. </li></ul>
  10. 10. CHALLENGES TO SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION <ul><li>Probabilistic design is not generally part of the engineering curriculum or understood by regulatory bodies.   </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation continues to be uneven. </li></ul><ul><li>Does everything have to be Six Sigma?   </li></ul><ul><li>Discipline.   </li></ul><ul><li>The Phased Implementation Approach   </li></ul><ul><li>Reliability. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Summary: <ul><li>Examine your leadership approach and style. </li></ul><ul><li>Think Quantum Leadership. </li></ul><ul><li>Act upon the Lessons Learned. </li></ul><ul><li>If you don’t provide leadership in your organization, who will? </li></ul>
