Six Sigma Design and Innovation

Six Sigma integrates strategies and techniques from Statistics, Quality Management, Business Management, and Engineering and has added billions of dollars/Euros to enterprise bottom lines across financial, healthcare, military, manufacturing, and other economic sectors. Its focus divides into two significant branches – innovation and design – that share a number of tools, techniques and objectives, but that often apply the tools and techniques differently, owing to their differing objectives. The Innovation branch of Six Sigma focuses on significant innovation/redesign in or of existing products, processes, and systems while the second branch, referred to as Design for Six Sigma, is directed at the design of new products and processes.
