Design for Six Sigma

 

Here is a nominal outline for a ten-day curriculum in Design Six Sigma course. As with all Scripps & Associates, PC offerings, however, the DFSS curriculum is customizable to your needs.

 

Scripps strongly recommends structuring a period of mentorship through a student’s first project.
