A roadmap to consistent, high-quality service for any organization A service is typically something created to serve a paying customer, whether internal or external. Some services consist of several processes linked together while others consist of a single process. This book introduces Design for Six Sigma (DFSS), an easy-to-master, yet highly effective data-driven method that prevents defects in any type of service process. The particular focus of this publication is service DFSS, which leads to what the authors term "a whole quality business," one that takes a proactive stance and gets things right the first time. Not only does the whole quality business produce a high-quality product and offer high-quality services, but it also operates at lower cost and higher efficiency, throughout the entire life cycle, than its competitors because all the links in the supply chain are optimized. Following a detailed overview that sets forth the basic premise and key concepts of service DFSS, the authors offer all the information and tools needed to take advantage of service DFSS within their own organizations, including: Clear and in-depth coverage of the philosophical, organizational, and technical aspects of service DFSS Step-by-step roadmap of the entire service DFSS deployment and execution process Full discussions of all the key methods involved in service DFSS, includin.
