This fourth phase of the DMAIC project is all about implementing a suitable solution to the problem: A DMAIC project is not an academic exercise where you want to find the root cause to write a thesis. You want to find the root cause in Analyze to find a practical and implementable solution in the Improve phase. Here is where the business case is ultimately made. Tools from the Lean and Six Sigma toolkit are listed in this section.
- Design of Experiments (DoE)
- Creativity Techniques
- Hypothesis tests
- FMEA (to assess risks before implementing solution)
- Prioritization Matrix
- Lean Tools (5S, Standard Work, Pull/ Kanban, SMED)
- Lean Kaizen
- Implementation Plan
