When To Use DMAIC

   The DMAIC methodology, instead of the DMADV methodology, should be used
when a product or process is in existence at your company but is not meeting customer
specification or is not performing adequately.


 
DMAIC

    Define
        
Measure
             
Analyze
                    
Improve
                          
Control

·Define the project goals and customer (internal and external) deliverables
·Measure the process to determine current performance
·Analyze and determine the root cause(s) of the defects
·Improve the process by eliminating defects
Control future process performance

   
When To Use DMADV
   The DMADV methodology, instead of the DMAIC methodology, should be used when:
·A product or process is not in existence at your company and one needs to be developed
·The existing product or process exists and has been optimized (using either DMAIC or not) and still doesn't meet the level of customer specification or six sigma level

·Define the project goals and customer (internal and external) deliverables
·Measure and determine customer needs and specifications
·Analyze the process options to meet the customer needs

lStep 1: Setting performance standards
lStandard - expected performance for a given goal
lTarget that establishes a desired performance level, motivates performance, and serves as a benchmark against which actual performance is assessed
lCan be set for any activity
lShould be specific, measurable, challenging, and established to improve performance
lTypically is derived from job requirements
lSet with respect to quantity, quality, time, and cost
lStep 2: Measuring performance
lPerformance data obtained from three sources
lWritten reports
lOral reports
lPersonal observation

Management procurement systems  - is our process of working with people and resources to accomplish organizational goals.
lStep 3: Comparing performance with the standard
lEvaluation of the performance
lFor some activities, small deviations from the standard are acceptable
lFor other activities, a slight deviation may be serious
lPrinciple of exception - control is enhanced by concentrating on the significant deviations from the standard
lOnly exceptional cases require corrective action
lStep 4: Taking corrective action
lEnsures that operations are adjusted where necessary to achieve the initially planned results
lType of corrective action depends on the nature of the problem
lHigher-ups can take corrective action
lOperator at the point of the problem can take corrective action
lSpecialist control - engineering specialist
lOperator control – multi-skilled operators can rectify their own problems
Step 5: Management audits
lEvaluation of the effectiveness and efficiency of various systems within an organization
lExternal audit - evaluation conducted by one organization, such as a CPA firm, on another
lMay conduct external audit of a competitor for strategic decision-making purposes
lUseful for feedback and feed forward control
lInternal audit - periodic assessment of a company’s own planning, organizing, leading, and controlling processes
lAssess what the company has done for itself and its customers
lReviews the company’s past, present, and future
