This proposal constitutes an algorithm of design applying thedesign for six sigma thinking, tools, and philosophy to softwaredesign.  The algorithm will also include conceptual designframeworks, mathematical derivation for Six Sigma capabilityupfront to enable design teams to disregard concepts that are notcapable upfront, learning the software development cycle and savingdevelopment costs.   

The uniqueness of this book lies in bringing all thosemethodologies under the umbrella of design and providedetailed description about how these methods, QFD, DOE, the robustmethod, FMEA, Design for X, Axiomatic Design, TRIZ can be utilizedto help quality improvement in software development, what kinds ofdifferent roles those methods play in various stages of design andhow to combine those methods to form a comprehensive strategy, adesign algorithm, to tackle any quality issues in the designstage.

From the Back Cover:

A realistic, step-by-step process for succeeding with DFSS

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is vital to software designactivities that decide quality, cost, and cycle time of thesoftware. This book is the first to completely cover the entirebody of knowledge of software DFSS, and the first to tie allquality improvement methods used in the design stage together witha software DFSS algorithm. The algorithm includes conceptual designframeworks blended with Six Sigma tools to hasten the softwaredevelopment cycle and save developmental costs.

Drawing on their unsurpassed experience leading DFSS and SixSigma in deployment in Fortune 100 companies, the authors cover theentire software DFSS project life cycle, from business case throughscheduling, customer-driven requirements gathering throughexecution. They provide real-world scenarios for applyingtechniques to software, hardware, and systems composed of both,while they also:

  • Illustrate the entire software DFSS deployment and executionprocesses

  • Provide in-depth and clear coverage of organizational andtechnical aspects of DFSS deployment

  • Explain how to apply DFSS in a software development project andchoose the right DFSS tools

  • Present ways to define measurable critical parameters thatreflect customer requirements and thoroughly assess business caserisk and opportunity

  • Explore axiomatic design and advanced robust design optimizationfor software

  • Reveal how to verify system capabilities and reliability basedon pilots or early testing

This unique guide brings together descriptions of methods suchas Design for Experiment (DoE), Quality Function Deployment (QFD),Software Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (SFMEA), Design for X,and Axiomatic Design in one place, showing how they can all beutilized to help quality improvement in software development, whatkinds of roles they play in various stages of design, and how theycan be combined to form a comprehensive strategy for tackling anyquality issues in the design stage. This is valuable informationfor software quality assurance professionals as well as designengineers, project engineers, and middle-level managers.
