DMAIC is an data-driven process for improving corporate processes. It can be used for establishing quality improvement, workplace conflict resolution, or to start change.
The process integrates five components; the Definition aspect allows problem definition and goal setting; the Measurement aspect focuses on quantifying the challenges; the Analysis aspect allows identification of the root cause of the challenge; the Improvement aspect focuses on solutions; and the control aspect focuses on maintaining the solution (Armstrong & Taylor, 2020).
Phone System Inc. has to decide which U.S. factory to shut down in order to grow its business operations in India.
DMAIC allows the team to make more informed decisions.
Phone System Inc.’s greatest problem is their inability to accommodate the varied interests of employees and managers across different organizations. Management are determined to help India grow, in order not to see their own companies close down. The lack of leadership is not effective, which leads to a lot of duplicate work. It is not common for the team to meet regularly to address the issue, which results in disorganized communication systems.
Analyse of the Stakeholders
Owners, managers and employees are the case’s main stakeholders. They are committed to increasing the institution’s brand equity and market share through global growth. The corporation’s job security attracts managers and they are less inclined to close their offices. Management assigns the employees to perform their duties.
SIPOC Process Diagram
Sipoc analyses the effect of different stakeholders on company efficiency. Phone Inc.’s problem is that facility managers have different interests and are reluctant to establish complex criteria when deciding which sites should be shut down. The institution is also limited in its resources, which causes it to close one centre before opening another in India. A limited amount of stakeholders participate because individuals remain steadfast in their views on the closure of facilities.
Information gathering on variables

Employees and suppliers will be able to assess the institution’s value chain process via questionnaires (Kotler & Keller, 2016).
Telephone Interviews and in-person Interviews: During this interview, relationships between the institution and suppliers will be assessed, along with manufacturing costs and efficiency.
It is possible to identify factors that impact the success of a team using the Ishikawa Diagram. An institution might use the following important factors: Determine objective criteria to determine which institutions are closing. The analysis of employee satisfaction and personnel attrition may help decide the viability of each unit.
Knowing the appraisal process will help improve relationships between people and reduce bosses’ suspicions of witch hunting. The institution should establish standard criteria for assessing the risk of prejudice.
Operational efficiency can be evaluated by increasing closure likelihood for inefficient production processes.
Make sure that the facility is selected impartially and with confidence.
