Improve Phase

Definition

Improve is the fourth phase of the DMAIC approach to Six Sigma process improvement. The Improve phase is when active experimentation is done to find (or verify) the root cause of a problem. Pilot improvements are put in place and tested to confirm that they will yield the desired results. If pilots are successful in the Improve Phase, the changes will be made permanent in the Control phase.
