“Quality begins with me.”
No need to choose between improvement and replacement - Six Sigma accommodates both!
“He who stops being better stops being good.” Oliver Cromwell
to insure that the team does not rehash, regress, or fail for other reasons
Responsibility: Quality Council (Steering Team)
Tools: QFD, Benchmarking, FMEA, DOE, Simulation, Optimization, Life-Cycle Planning, Taguchi Loss Functions, and TRIZ
“When organizations are considering making a change, they will consider associated costs, but will not give adequate consideration to the cost of not making the change.”

Don’t Waste Money on Extended Warranties!
Many stores recommend the purchase of extended warranties to go with consumer electronics. They are available for automobiles as well, but they are rarely if ever cost effective. The bathtub curve (a model for failure or hazard rates in reliability engineering,) explains why.
How does this curve suggest the best way to prioritize defect reduction?
This compares to “OFAT” experiments, which take too long and cannot detect interactions!
