Develop a roadmap to solve problems using a structured approach.
DMAIC is an abbreviation of the five main steps in the process: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. All of the DMAIC process steps are required, and they always proceed in the given order. The DMAIC problem-solving method can drive significant improvements in an organization and represents a five-step plan that offers organizations a roadmap to follow so that issues can be resolved using a structured approach.
- Define the problem or project goal. The more specifically the problem is defined, the greater the chance is to solve the problem or complete the project successfully.
- After the project or problem has been defined, there is a need to identify how to Measure the performance.
- Once the measuring stage has determined the addition measurements, the data is collected and Analyzed. The purpose of this step is to identify and select root causes of a problem. You can list and prioritize potential causes of the problem, prioritize root causes or key process inputs to pursue in the Improve step, and identify how the process inputs affect the process outputs.
- After measurements have been taken and analyzed, then possible solutions can be developed to Improve your process. Take a look at the results and make sure there are no consequences to the selected solution.
- After the implementation stage, you need to Control the process. Monitor the improvements to ensure continued and sustainable success.
