The DMAIC model is a roadmap for Six Sigma, used to improve the quality of results that company processes produce. The letters DMAIC are short for: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control.
The goal of the DMAIC approach is to bring structure to problem-solving. When organizations consistently use the model, employees become better at addressing process issues and finding an effective solution. Cross-functional collaboration is enhanced, and change becomes easier to control. Teams can use DMAIC to implement a new process or improve an existing process. Because change is based on collected data, it is possible to determine whether business results are improved and by what measure.
DMAIC is popular because it is repeatable and easy to understand. It provides quantifiable evidence that improvements are working. During the Define phase, high-impact opportunities for improvement are selected. During the Measure phase, existing processes are documented, data is collected, and a baseline upon which to improve is established. The Analyze phase aims to identify and test the root causes of problems and ensure that improvement is focused on them. Now you will start to implement the changes that the study and measurement have prescribed.
Start by educating your team about the DMAIC approach and how it will be used in your organization. Emphasize the data collection aspects of the model. Many Lean Six Sigma tools can be used during a DMAIC cycle, including control charts, the 5 Whys, fishbone diagrams, and Catchball.

Ideal for supplier relations, product teams, operations, procurement and process improvement teams, this template is easy to use and has all the benefits of Six Sigma’s lean approach. Available in six design variations, this PowerPoint template can be used tofocus on the development of new products or services compared to existing ones. Each slide has a color-coded category for the five phases of the DMAIC framework. You can include a key description, set of next steps and actions for each category within the template. Though this is a linear process, the various design variations give you the flexibility to map out each phase dynamically – with minimal text or added text. All graphics, colors, text and icons are editable and customizable.
