    Hi, I´m from Brazil, and i start the training in Six sigma program, but i have some doubts.
    What is the most difference between PDCA and DMAIC?
    If i use PDCA methodology what are the problems i will encounter?
    I´ll hope that somebody answer my ingenuos questions.
    Thanks,

    Personally, I like the PDCA approach.  Using this approach you have already looked at a distribution of problems and setting forth a method of how you wish to attack it.  I usually define a topic, Graph or state the reason for selecting the topic, graph the current situation, establish the target, analyze the cause, select the most appropriate countermeasure(s), check the result, then standardize the process.  In the DMAIC approach, you begin with defining the problem and what the customer requires.  It is too easy for me to become distracted by this problem definition not knowing where I’m being lead.  I prefer to to lead the activity then change the plan if the data so dictates rather that watching where the data takes me while at the same time trying to focused on the result.  I guess my real problem is that it is harder for me to define a problem when I have many, than to look at all the problems and decide which to attack first.
