DFSS is the acronym for Design For Six Sigma. A variant of Six Sigma, it is a methodology used to design from scratch or re-design a product or process to one that meets customer requirements and has an expected quality level of Six Sigma. DFSS is about “getting it right the first time” instead of improving later.
