The DMAIC Methodology

Six Sigma improvement teams use the DMAIC methodology to root out and eliminate the causes of defects:

D Define a problem or improvement opportunity.

M Measure process performance.

A Analyze the process to determine the root causes of poor performance; determine whether the process can be improved or should be redesigned.

I Improve the process by attacking root causes.

C Control the improved process to hold the gains.
