DMAIC, 5S and 8 Wastes are the procedures that are data-driven problem-solving methodologies used. These are an integral part of Lean initiatives. Lean is the method that relies on the collaborative team efforts to improve performance by systematically removing the waste and reducing the variation.
The methods DMAIC, 5s and 8 wastes are used for the same reason in Lean manufacturing technology.
DMAIC- The acronym stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. Where they measure value, analyse the root cause, improve the process and control system after implementation. It can be implemented as a standalone quality improvement procedure or as part of other process improvement initiatives such as lean.
5s- This system often referred to as Lean manufacturing, aims to increase the value of the products and services for the customers. The 5s helps in reducing the cost, increase productivity and create a safe work environment.
8 Waste- When not adding value procedures are removed and only value-adding steps that are required are left to provide improved and satisfactory products or services. These 8 Waste includes Defects, overproduction, waiting, non-utilised talent, extra processing, idle inventory, unnecessary transportation, an unnecessary motion may be due to product misplace.
In the Infographic given below, you will find detailed information about DMAIC, 5S and 8 waste processes to improve the standards of the organization, productivity, and quality of products or services.
