    Wouldn’t the acronym then be: DMPDP?

    I can assure you that it stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Verify.

    Hi Tom Q. :

    Thank you for your answer, and the term DMADV, sounds a confused term.

    GE after implementing Six Sigma,decided to aply Six Sigma for their products and developed the term : Designed For Six Sigma (DFSS), that term is used to define when some device, or product has been designed since their conception using six sigma.

    Now for me DMADV , sounds like the Deming´s control cycle, Plan-Do-Check-Act, but nothing else !!!

    I´ve been searching and I know so far that there are two main streams to implement Six Sigma in any company, and there are:

    DMAIC.- Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control
    IDMAIC.-Identify, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control.

    Thank you for the explanation of the DMADV term.

    DFSS is, in essence, the same as the DMADV methodology, and it does have the same wrinkles as the Deming wheel (Plan-Do-Check-Act). All the tools and concepts taught in a DMADV course are very familiar. The beauty of the methodology, though, is where the emphasis goes, and how all the tools, concepts, and phases fit together in a cohesive, logical order.

    The Six Sigma Academy teaches the breakthrough strategy, which is RDMAICSI (Recognize, DMAIC, Standardize, Integrate). Again, this is nothing substantially different than the two DMAIC streams you referred to.

    Use DMADV for a process that is fundamentally broken or has reached its level of entitlement, requiring redesign.

    Use DMAIC for an existing process that is not quite at its level of entitlement, i.e. not quite meeting its targets.
