Abstract

The suppliers, inputs, process, outputs and customers (SIPOC) tool typically is applied to define, measure, analyze, improve and control (DMAIC) projects. The author proposes how it also can be used effectively for design for Six Sigma (DFSS) projects. The key difference in applying the tool to these two project types is the increased importance of considering process steps along the entire value chain for DFSS projects.
