main-hd-line Engineering Design for Six Sigma

Joe Ficalora & Associates have engineering experience in the fields of design for six sigma, optics, lasers, aerospace, automotive, assembled products, medical devices, semiconductors, glass, plastic, metal manufacturing.

From Fault Tree Analysis to DFMEA, we have brought key tools to hundreds of complex product problems and applied them to generate solutions quickly and without fanfare.

Be it a faulty guidance system, a sudden drop off in aircraft display supplier yields, a malfunctioning laser, or an early-life failure in air conditioning compressors, we have access to experts in the field who can bring proven expertise to the engineering problem at hand.

We have led tiger teams, sub-teams, and one-of-a-kind fault tree analysis training and workshops designed to attack specific complex problems.

"We have had this life failure problem for over 10 years, and this is the first real progress we have made on this issue."

The Seven Keys to Design for Six Sigma Success

  • Active NPD Phase Gate Process
  • Linkage to Growth Strategy
  • "Mind-Meld" or being in step with Marketing
  • Obtaining "True VOC" and acting on it
  • Engineering Culture Shift, all engineers
  • The Right Tools, Roadmap & Instruction
  • Project by Project Selection & Reviews, every one, every time
