In the 1950s, Dr. Williams-Edwards-Deming, a prominent management consultant, came up with the concept of the Deming cycle. He wants to create a framework to determine how a product or service meets customer needs, propose PDCA by creating a process that describes how a product or service meets customer needs, and introduce PDCA as a solution.

What is PDCA Cycle?

PDCA is an iterative, four-stage approach to problem-solving. It includes Plan, Do, Check, and Act. We can think of the basic structure of problem solving at each stage of the enterprise as the plan-do-check-act cycle. It helps us to consider various solutions to the challenge and validate them before applying them on a large scale. The PDCA approach can be seen in all types of business environments, including new product creation, project, change management, and supply chain management.


  1. Plan: identify the root cause of the problem and then plan a change or test for improvement.

  2. Do: make changes or tests, preferably on a small scale or on a small scale.

  3. Check: check whether the expected results have been achieved, whether errors have occurred, and what has been learned.

  4. Act: if the expected results are achieved, adopt the changes. If the result is not ideal, the knowledge obtained from the previous cycle is used to repeat the cycle.
