Abstract

Define, measure, analyze, improve and control (DMAIC) is a structured problem-solving method. In this Back to Basics article, Carl F. Berardinelli explains how each phase of DMAIC builds on the previous one, with the goal of implementing long-term solutions to problems. Sometimes, project leaders or sponsors don’t feel a formal approach is necessary, but most problem-solving efforts benefit from a disciplined method.
