    Hi all,
    I have just started a M.Sc thesis in Quality Management with an Irish university; this thesis is purely research based and required students to spend 10 months working with an organisation to solve a significant quality related problem. I have recently confirmed a contract with an Irish pharma company to carry out my project there; the project involves identifying and eliminating variability from the production process to produce predictable yields.
    I am currently thinking that the DMAIC framework would be the best method of tackling this problem. However this is not a six sigma project, and there would not really be a defined DMAIC project team, I would be carrying out the project on my own, with support from the company of course.
    Does this sound like a reasonable approach? I do believe that a structured framework is essential to solve this problem, but am unsure if DMAIC can be effectively deployed when not part of a defined team.
    Any comments on this issue would be greatly appreciated!!!
    Thanks,
    Kieran

    DMAIC can be used in any size of team even a team of 1. The framework and tools are what you need.

    Good luck though. To do this on your own without a team will be hard, do you have a pharma and science background?

    Hi,

    According to me, when the time you started talking about “controlling the variability and DMAIC approach” then it by default comes under the LSS framework.

    Data driven approach is best & effective approach for solving problems basically from the variation area.

    Hence i strongly recommend to follow the LSS principles in your focused problem area.

    Best Wishes.
