Description of DMAIC Process

The DMAIC process cycle contributes to easier identification and quicker resolution of project quality problems. DMAIC is an acronym that stands for:

  • Define – Develop a vision for the project, map the project management process and set project requirements
  • Measure – Collect data and process defects and possible causes. Organize hierarchically and visualize process data using pareto analysis
  • Analyze – Write descriptions of problems related to the process, exploring potential causes to identify inefficiencies. Organize potential causes and collect more in-depth data if applicable. Qualify cause-effect relationships by using statistical methods.
  • Improve – Create possible solutions for root causes, selecting the most feasible ones to design improvement plans. Run pilot test for the plans. Implement the improvement plans and evaluate results.
  • Control – Design and document standard practices for process improvement. Train personnel and keep track of process performance. Summarize and communicate results obtained.
