It is essential that companies adopt a strategic stance regarding their positioning, creating goals that will ensure their growth and not their stagnation. One of the best known methods for creating these goals and generating continuous improvement within the industry is the PDCA cycle (plan – do – check – act).
Plan: This establishes a company’s expectations for a certain process. If the company’s goal is to reach 100% success rate in its production, that is what the goals have to attack in this step.
Do: Implement the plan determined in the planning stage. Collect data for mapping and analysis of the next steps. Elaborate the goal indicators, which are always determined at the output.
Check: Study the results generated via indicators and numbers. This step depends on other highly measurable steps. The success lies in developing more effective production control methods, and determining how much more effective they will be.
Act: Corrective measures that go back to the first stage of the process. At this point, the initial improvement project no longer exists: it has been improved, adapted, and become a separate personality from what was known as the process in the company.
