The aim of Six Sigma is to minimize the – unavoidable – process spread in order to reduce costs and increase quality and productivity. For this purpose, the respective process is analyzed and optimized in 5 steps of the Six Sigma improvement process. Six Sigma (6σ) is not just a management system that aims to improve and optimize processes. Six Sigma combines many methods and tools that are data-based and evaluated and monitored using statistical methods. Six Sigma is therefore also a method of quality management. Its core element is the so-called DMAIC cycle: Define – Measure – Analyze – Improve – Control. There are a number of effective tools for each of these steps, which together enable a deep understanding of business and production processes.
DMAIC represents a standardized phase model for processing improvement projects. DMAIC stands for the phases define, measure, analysis, improve and control. Through knowledge of the technical terms of the Six Sigma philosophy and the process of projects according to the DMAIC method, Yellow Belts are able to actively support and accompany Six Sigma projects.
