DMAIC defines the issues affecting the company to a large span making it easier to distill more clues and real figures from the top performers in the industry thus acquiring facts and reliable data to promote the project.
If data from an unbiased source is used, say the company being studied has customer care satisfaction ratings of seventy-three out of a hundred; the ‘average’ company in the industry has a rating of seventy-six out of a hundred and the best performer in the industry at eighty-seven percent. This data alone shows that efforts have to be made in order for the company to survive the competition. In the IT service industry customer satisfaction is a major contributor to a company’s growth (Hallowell).
Support costs per call are not related to satisfaction, best companies’ support call cost $26, ‘average’ companies at $30 per call while the case study company’ call cost about $36 which is the highest of all (Hallowell).On focusing the DMAIC project the ‘Y’ being new account growth and the ‘Xs’ being the number of transfers, wait time and service. Wait time is associated with customer satisfaction thus the improvement on the time is essential. After the discovery of the points of weakness: the company managers then set project goals, scope and the study case using DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) teams.
D1. Project Charter: it expands on the business case clarifying the focus and measures of the project’s performance and is completed by a six sigma Black Belts who are the team leaders. They respond by implementing the improvement projects using skills of six sigma tools and a lead increase in customer satisfaction. The key stakeholders are the customers, staff members, and the business. The problem statement is one of the project charter elements; it gives the progress of the competitors as compared to the stagnated case study company.

Lean 6? – Root Cause Analysis process capability from the external customer’s and VOP perspectives Introduction Six Sigma has emerged as a method of identifying, classifying and solving problems that affect the overall productivity of a business. Large industrial names such as GE and Motorola have proved the efficacy of utilising Six Sigma over and over again.
A number of researchers and authors have presented definitions on six sigma. Interestingly, their understanding of the concept is expressed in different words but the meaning is standardized. We can say that six sigma is a tool employed for the measurement and improvement of operational performance of an organization.
Nowadays, companies, whether manufacturing or non-manufacturing, are seeing the benefits that Six Sigma offers to them. Surprisingly, though, Six Sigma is just a fairly modern invention. This paper explores and examines the definition, methodology, corps of experts, and criticisms attributed to Six Sigma system.
Six Sigma uses a variety of quality management procedures and groups the workforce into a special infrastructure that is based on the employee’s skills (Pande & Holpp, 2002). Every Six Sigma project follows a specific sequence of steps which has its own objectives.
Six Sigma was an invention of the Motorola Company when it wanted to determine the number of its products that were of high quality and those that had defects. Through the process, the manufacturer had to remove products which had defects and reduce variability in the process of production to provide to the market items of the same brand with similar levels of quality.
Six Sigma is initially developed by Motorola in mid 1980s for various systematic improvements and eliminating certain defects. It is a registered trade mark of Motorola which is being adopting by number of companies
Statistically, its purpose is to decrease process variation to enable virtually all the services or products provided satisfy or exceed the client’s expectations.
Motorola formulated the methodological particulars of Six Sigma in 1986, though it can be traced
Before Simon Kuznets, most economic theories of development only factored in economic costs and used assumptions such as technology and preferences of consumers being constant. With these assumptions, the framework of such economic theories became short-term. According to Kuznets, Modern Economic Growth is characterized by extensive use of new technology and science in the production process.
In fact, many wars were fought and many men died while protecting or honoring these codes of life.
Yuan, Ming and Qing periods are filled with tales of honor. Writers, poets and calligraphers have played their part in representing the honor code during these three periods
