Using the PDCA Cycle to Manage Design Deliverables (Milwaukee CoP)

Milwaukee Community of Practice

Learn how the Miron Sagola team used the PDCA cycle to better define design deliverables, get reliable commitments from the design team, and track the reliability of those commitments to manage the deliverables on a large industrial project.  The tool was then used as the meeting agenda to prioritize discussions, keep the agenda organized, and reduce the number of items that needed to be reviewed on a weekly basis, thereby saving time by shortening the meetings.
