History of DMAIC
Michel Harry & Bill Smith created “MAIC” – the methodology that evolved to become DMAIC.
Harry includes the following strategy elements in the traditional approach to six sigma:

- (S) Standardize the systems that prove to be best-in-class
- (I) Integrate best-in-class systems into the strategic planning framework.
