Applying Design for Six Sigma to Software and Hardware Systems Excerpt
Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) offers engineers powerful opportunities to develop more successful systems, software, hardware and processes. In Applying Design for Six Sigma to Software and Hardware Systems, two leading experts, Eric Maass and Patricia D. McNair, offer a realistic, step-by-step process for succeeding with DFSS. Their clear, start-to-finish roadmap is designed for successfully developing complex high-technology products and systems that require both software and hardware development.
Drawing on their unsurpassed experience leading Six Sigma at Motorola, the authors cover the entire project lifecycle, from business case through scheduling, customer-driven requirements gathering through execution. They provide real-world examples for applying their techniques to software alone, hardware alone and systems composed of both. Product developers will find proven job aids and specific guidance about what teams and team members need to do at every stage.
Using this book’s integrated, systems approach, marketers, software professionals and hardware developers can converge all their efforts on what really matters: addressing the customer’s true needs.
