The power of Six Sigma methodology in diagnostic development
Six Sigma methodology is a problem solving framework that focuses on understanding and reducing variation, to improve the performance of new and existing products and processes. Widely adopted across a range of businesses spanning multiple industries, it features a general framework to assist with structuring improvement projects alongside a toolkit of more specific techniques that sit under the Six Sigma banner.
Used correctly, it can be a powerful methodology to fast track your diagnostic development, using statistical tools to evaluate and optimise the performance and reliability of your product. It is particularly useful for the optimisation of complex systems with multiple design and user variables, making it an ideal tool to use when developing modern diagnostics systems.
