Integrating DMAIC with Kaizen Events Ensures Continuous Improvement
Abstract: Kaizen generates small improvements as a result of coordinated continuous efforts by all employees. Kaizen events bring together a group of process owners to map out an existing process and identify improvements that are within the scope of the participants. The Companies can make breakthrough improvements in existing processes through DMAIC, Kaizen can be effective which applied continuous improvement utilizing the rigor and discipline of DMAIC. Kaizen event and DMAIC together become elements of the larger quest for improvement. The purpose of this paper is to explore Kaizen events implementation under DMAIC mechanism. The goal was to explore how Kaizen event this evolution and the relative weight of factors as the methodology developed.
