Unformatted text preview: ]. As a result, much research has gone into figuring out ways to decrease the time required to apply the scientific method repeatedly in real-world organizations. There are three broad approaches described in literature, which can be applied concurrently, to accelerate the process of learning from the PDCA cycle by decreasing time and reducing cost. One approach is focused on the structure and management of an organization. These approaches tend to focus on the use of quality circles and other organizational features to train and develop personnel to more rapidly design and conduct experiments[19]. A second approach is to use statistical methods, such as sampling and experimental design, to minimize the number of samples required or experiments performed before reaching a conclusion[50]. A third approach is to utilize technology and automated data processing to make the measurement and/or the analytical process faster, easier and less expensive to perform[6, 7]. The real-time feedback discussed in this section is an example of the third approac...
