Define Measure Analyze Improve Control

DMAIC is the step-by-step technique for occurring Six Sigma projects and performance improvements:

Define the operational problem (e.g., too lot delay, too countless defects or too lot variation) Measure baseline KPIs (Key power Indicators) Analyze the root causes of defects or deviation Improve through implementing and validating countermeasures that remove root reasons Control power to sustain the development
