How Synergy SPC Software Enables a Successful Six Sigma DMAIC Deployment

 

Many quality tools like Six Sigma have been developed to eliminate scrap, reduce rework and enable you to improve your processes. The underlying methodology behind Six Sigma is called the DMAIC process. According to ASQ, the global voice of quality, Six Sigma uses the DMAIC process to root out and eliminate the causes of defects. DMAIC is defined as:

  • 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.

In his article for Quality Process called “To DMAIC or Not to DMAIC” Carl F. Berardinelli said, “Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) is a structured problem-solving method… It builds on learning from previous phases to arrive at permanent solutions for difficult problems.”

When using Six Sigma, DMAIC is a great tool to improve a company’s overall process improvement strategy. The DMAIC process can enable you to uncover waste, reduce downtime and rework, and increase personnel productivity. Using Synergy SPC Software can assist you in developing and maintaining an ongoing DMAIC process at your company. Therefore you can concentrate on continually monitoring global data, improving your processes, evaluating personnel as well as your production equipment and your suppliers worldwide.

How does Synergy SPC Software assist you in building a DMAIC process for your facility? Click on “How Synergy Enables a Successful Six Sigma Deployment” for more details.
