PDCA is considered one of the most popular frameworks for continuous business process improvement. The PDCA cycle is best known as a business improvement model for organizing business processes and manufacturing. It was invented in the 1950s by Edward Deming, a statistician working in Japan. His PDCA cycle has become one of the pillars of Toyota's just-in-time production system. Over the past two decades, Toyota's systems have become one of the most successful demonstrations of lean manufacturing using PDCA; Details about Toyota's use of PDCA in Lean Methods can be found in Jeffrey Lake's book Toyota Way (2003).

According to Deming, you can apply PDCA for the following purposes:

  • Having a system in place for continuous quality improvement

  • Reducing defects through higher levels of quality uniformity

  • Understanding what quality should mean within context
