Abstract

Although the requirements on quality of products are increasing, most companies still pays little attention to product quality planning. Furthest in this direction they are automotive suppliers, which include most of metallurgical companies, which use quality planning methodologies developed for this industry area and which must within the framework of production part approval process submit evidence about successful products and processes quality planning. However, even for these companies, there are ways that open the door to further improvement in this area. One of those possibilities is methodology Design for Six Sigma. The aim of this paper is to draw attention to this approach and to select suitable tools and methods of Design for Six Sigma, which can significantly streamline the course of individual phases of product quality planning. With timely deployment of these tools, an organization can significantly contribute to the development of a robust and competitive product while maintaining the idea of Six Sigma approach (maintaining a low proportion of defects in manufacturing the product).
