DMAIC is a proven approach for eliminating defects and improving quality-related business metrics. DMAIC and Lean (the combined methodologies are known as Lean Six Sigma) complement each other and are the foundation for continuous improvement in most companies.

The DMAIC approach is really very simple and practical: DEFINE your problem, MEASURE where you are and where you want to go, ANALYZE data to understand the problem, IMPROVE or eliminate the underlying causes, and CONTROL the process for the long run.
