Make the Right Choice

Now that we have seen the similarities and differences between the two Six Sigma Methodologies DMAIC and DMADV, would you be able to identify which situations each should be used in?

  • DMAIC will reap you rich rewards if used when an existent product or service is not meeting customer satisfaction levels or organization performance levels.
  • DMADV is more valuable when used if you need to decide on the introduction of a new product, or if the product exists and has been subject to the DMAIC or any other methodology, but still does not meet customer specifications or Six Sigma standards.
