One of these enhanced Design for Six Sigma examples illustrates an approach for conducting product mean time between failures (MTBF) in development.
Enhanced Design for Six Sigma Examples
Product mean time between failures (MTBF) validation tests in Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) typically provide questionable results. The described alternative reliability assessment strategy in the White Paper article below can provide more meaningful information, while utilizing a much smaller sample size – perhaps only one. A unique Design of Experiments [DOE] technique is used in this DFSS example.
Additional DOE DFSS application illustrations are provided in Examples 43.2, 43.3, 43.4 and 42.3 of the book:
A newer version of this Implementing Six Sigma book, where the sequence of topics follow an enhanced lean Six Sigma process improvement Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) roadmap, is:
This book is one of a 5-book series that provides the implementation details of the Integrated Enterprise Excellence (IEE) system, which goes beyond lean Six Sigma and the Balanced Scorecard.
