Session Overview:

DFSS, or Design for Six Sigma, is a method that has evolved from a core Six Sigma DMAIC approach to process improvement.  Influence and popularity of DFSS has grown due to its ability to integrate with your existing product design processes, from concept to launch of production, focusing on achieving the nexus of flawless production, optimal product performance, and delighted customers at minimal cost.  Join us in this session as we demonstrate the practical application of DFSS, utilizing an IDDOV (Identify, Define, Develop, Optimize and Verify) approach, at the Faurecia Clean Mobility technical center in Columbus, Indiana.  Our DFSS trainer, Robert Tripp, will host the event as guests from Faurecia will share their experiences, results, and insights from their own DFSS journey.

 Session Highlights:

  • DFSS Overview with Robert Tripp
  • Faurecia Clean Mobility project experiences and insights
  • Interactive Q&A

Cost:  Complimentary / No cost – This event is made possible thanks to funding assistance through the MEP National Emergency Assistance Program.
