Webinar Outline:
In today’s marketplace of intense competition and rapidly changing market conditions, the objective of any organization is to make products better, faster and cheaper than the competition. To accomplish these goals companies need to speed up their product development processes while controlling costs and maintaining high levels of quality.

Decisions made in the design stage can impact all aspects of downstream product development, significantly affecting manufacturing cost, quality and delivery lead times. Taking a proactive approach by including Six Sigma philosophy upfront into the early design stage can help develop high quality, profitable products eventually bringing sustained value to customers and markets.
