DFSS process has been demonstrated and some examples of the world-class companies have been presented. Finally, some implementation obstacles have been addressed and the DFSS training program has beendescribed and emphasized. The findings imply that the methodologies for DFSS are enormous and companies employ different methodologies. Consequently, the tools and techniques used by companies in DFSS process are different. The role of project leaders and DFSS training programs are found as essentials for success of DFSS projects. In the DFSS training program, some Six Sigma methodology prerequisites should be considered and the program should be offered flexible, consisting required, recommended and optional courses.
