    New BB

    I am a new BB in a BB position. I noticed part of our organization has a new unit currently in development stages. They are beginning to establish processes as we speak. I was thinking of discussing DSFF and establishing their processes under this method.
    This is doable correct?


    Dr. Eugene Jacquescoley

    Congratulations on your new Black Belt certification, as well as your new BB position. Building a roadmap for a new  process is not easy and you appear to be on the right track. I suggest you combine DFSS with DMADV.
    (Simon, 2006)

    Define Measure  Analyze   Design    Verify

    Define the project goals and customer (internal and external) deliverables
    Measure and determine customer needs and specifications
    Analyze the process options to meet the customer needs
    Design (detailed) the process to meet the customer needs
    Verify the design performance and ability to meet customer needs
    When To Use DMADVThe DMADV methodology, instead of the DMAIC methodology, should be used when:

    A product or process is not in existence at your company and one needs to be developed
    The existing product or process exists and has been optimized (using either DMAIC or not) and still doesn’t meet the level of customer specification or six sigma level



    I think DFSS is a great fit for what you are looking at.  My concern would be timing, there a significant amount of start up time required to get DFSS up and running well.  If you already have a good handle on VOC and CTQs for this new area, then you are further down the path and should be able to get up to speed quickly.  If not, I think you will run into road blocks since they are a already designing processes.
    If they say no to DFSS, I would suggest you still use some of the DFSS tools to validate the design, and I always use Lean tools as well to look at the target process to see if we can improve on the design.
