|Using Simulation and Optimization to Improve Your DFSS Projects|
|Company:||Crystal Ball Software (Oracle)|
|Date / Time:||May 2006|
|Description:||Rapid time-to-market, reduced use of physical prototypes, fewer defects, minimal post-design rework, and satisfied customers. These advantages are what make Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) such an appealing methodology. But achieving these benefits is by no means an easy task. For instance, how does your design team create a successful new product or process when it has little or no available design data?|
Join Karl Luce, Master Black Belt with Decisioneering, Inc. and learn how one increasingly popular approach that circumvents the lack of design data is the combined use of simulation and optimization. Advances in desktop software and PCs now mean that these rigorous design techniques can be applied by almost any engineer or analyst. Through a series of case studies, this workshop will provide you with the why and the how-to for spreadsheet simulation and optimization. Discussion topics will include:
Why you need to quantify variability in DFSS projects.
How simulation and optimization fit into the DMADV methodology.
Practical techniques for identifying robust, high quality solutions.
Why all forms of optimization are not equal.
Plus, download a copy of the presentation and demonstration model.
