Guide and Best Practices

Also known as the Deming cycle, the PDCA cycle is an essential technique in lean manufacturing. It is widely used in continuous process improvement. It enables teams to identify and avoid recurring errors and improve processes.

PDCA process

  • Define the problem. To do so you may need to identify the root cause of it with the help of a cause and effect diagram or a 5 whys diagram.
  • Once you know the root cause, set your goals while making sure that they are specific, measurable and attainable and identify the resources you have and will need.
  • Brainstorm the possible solutions and select one that is most promising. Test it out on a small scale to see how effective it is.
  • Evaluate the results of the solution you have applied. Collaborate with your team to identify areas for improvement.
  • Apply changes accordingly and repeat the do and check phases until you have perfected your solution.
  • Implement the solution. Repeat the cycle if you are looking for continuous improvement, starting with finding areas for improvement.
  • Share the diagrams you have created with others with the help of Creately Viewer. Embed it in websites, company wikis or intranet to give everyone quick access.
