Abstract: Quality techniques and Design for Six Sigma methodology are complex areas that need to be understood through correlation of theoretical and practical teaching. Universities started to apply different approaches for achieving better results, on building greater knowledge and skills for their students. The paper presents a methodology of teaching quality techniques and DFSS methodology, an approach that is focused on understanding the concepts through technical examples from industry and applying the knowledge within a project. A model is proposed for teaching Design for Six Sigma methodology through a workshop done in the classroom. The students are split into groups and will practically work through the main elements of DFSS methodology, for improving the quality of a chosen product by re-designing it. The objective of research is to analyze the performance of this methodology and to identify the strong points. The measurement is done through feedbacks received from students, that is presented at the end of the paper. The methodologies used during research consist of bibliographic research, observational study on classroom, questionnaire and interview technique.
