Abstract

6 Sigma works with projects called DMAIC to reduce problems that are classified as quality-critical, transportation-critical, or cost critical. A DMAIC project stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Implement Improvements, and Control. With this DMAIC methodology, the reduction of the variation that arises from the types of problems that were mentioned within the 6 Sigma methodology is sought. In this way, in each phase of the project or DMAIC process, different types of quality tools are used that serve to obtain the objective of each stage. Then, the objective of this research is the presentation of the most effective tools of the methodology and how they can be applied to any type of problem to increase efficiency and productivity, only and so that beginning practitioners can begin to implement it in any project regardless of the degree they are studying.
