Six Sigma in an R&D context
Theresa
Is it possible to use Six Sigma to improve the quality of R&D processes? Or do R&D activities naturally defy systematic improvement efforts?
 

 
Six Sigma in Development
Maarten Peters
The DMAIC-process as the basis of Six Sigma offers a structural problem-solving methodology.
The Define phase is typical one of the phases and is also critical for the development process with 'Voice of the Customer' as an important input. If there is no customer, there is no market for a product.
Typical development process ends with the Implementation phase and the Control phase (producing the product) is in many cases outside the scope of the Product development team but it is the scope if you look at it from a company perspective.
So yes Six Sigma as a problem solving methodoly is applicable to product development.
