by Culhane, Thomas A., M.S., California State University, Dominguez Hills, 2013, 130; 1524789
Abstract (Summary)

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a methodical quality design strategy for deploying new products, services, and processes in all aspects of business functions; its goal is to improve customer satisfaction, sales, and revenue.

This project presents the theory and application of the DFSS Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, and Verify (DMADV) model as applied to the design and development of an environmental compliance process. This model addresses recent European Union (EU) regulations known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, and Restriction of Chemicals).

The project presents the methodical use of applicable quality tools and concepts by a project team at an original components manufacturer (OCM) for each stage of the DMADV model. The final presentation has resulted in a process that consistently meets customer requirements, targeted release dates, and process capabilities as defined by the project charter.
