DMAIC is an acronym for "Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control", which is the methodology for using specific data and data sets for optimization of business processes. Six Sigma methods result in consistent results and repeatable delivery.
Six Sigma, and Six Sigma Lean are all about reducing waste. Waste is bad! Waste can be movement of product, too much inventory, or even an inefficient operation in the middle of your production run.
Whether it's simple 5S events or full Kaizen events, there are significant benefit opportunities in application of Six Sigma Methodologies.
Kaizen is a Japanese word for "Improvement", and that is exactly what this is about.

How can you make money doing that?
