DfSS 2009: Excelling in Product Development
‘Building a robust product design system to slash back costs, cut time-to-market and meet customers’ needs’

"DfSS is more than a few tools and software. It is a culture of accountability and trust between senior leadership and teams, of partnership between marketing, R&D, and manufacturing”
Georgette Belair, VP of Design Excellence & Cross-Business Programs at Cardinal Health, and co-author of ‘Implementing Design for Six Sigma: A Leader’s Guide
