A Different Side of Six Sigma
Six Sigma isn’t new and the most popular process of this methodology is probably the DMAIC method or define, measure, analyze, improve, and control. This approach is relatively simple and ensures delivery of quality projects through the utilization of these processes.
Now comes Six Sigma DMEDI methodologies (design, measure, explore, develop, and implement), and they come with a twist. According to Steven H. Jones, DMEDI is “more of a creative approach to designing new robust processes, products, and services." Jones also says of DMEDI, “it’s a quantum leap over current environments."
So what does that mean as far as your projects go? We’ve all heard the phrase if it’s not broke don’t fix it, so do you really need to utilize DMEDI?
