Guide and Best Practices

DMAIC is an acronym that stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. It is an integral part of Six Sigma and is used as a problem-solving strategy to facilitate process improvement projects.

DMAIC process

  • Identify and define the problem that is affecting your customer or company processes. Create a problem statement accordingly.
  • Create a goal statement based on the problem statement, while making sure that the needed resources, funds, personnel are available at hand.
  • Create a SIPOC diagram in order to provide the team with a high-level overview of the process that is being analyzed. You can also use a value stream map to do this. You can also get a more in-depth understanding of the process with the help of a process map.
  • Measure the extent of the problem. To do so, study the process in its current situation with the help of the process owners.
  • Next identify the root causes that are causing the problem. You can use cause and effect diagram to identify and analyze the causes.
  • Define the steps you need to take to mitigate the root cause of the problem you have identified. Together with the team, brainstorm proper solutions.
  • Select the most practical solution using an impact effort matrix. Based on the solution you have selected, create new process maps that reflects the changes.
  • Maintain the improvements you have gained by implementing the changes. Create a response plan that defines the steps that should be taken if there’s a drop in the process performance.
  • Share the future-state map you have created with your stakeholders using the Creately Viewer. Any changes that you make to the map will be instantly reflected on the Viewer.
