Abstract

This capstone addresses how the Define Measure Analyze Improve - Control (DMAIC) process, which is typically utilized in manufacturing engineering, can be implemented by Fort Carson to achieve Pentagon mandated Sustainability Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) 25 year goals and maintain an International Standards Organization (ISO) certification. The predictable and repeatable Six Sigma DMAIC process can be a standalone method utilized by Fort Carson employees to accomplish the goals and certification. DMAIC phases, tools, worksheets and checklists are included in this capstone with an example of Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) usage for each DMAIC phase. This capstone project will be presented to Fort Carson as a tool to be utilized to achieve their SEMS goals and ISO certification.
