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.
