Abstract - In this research, the focus was in a manufacturing production line of receptacles assembly. The receptacles are the finish good of this production line. In this process the receptacle is build completely starting with the bridge assembly and finishing in the top assembly. DMAIC is the methodology used in this research as Define, Measure Analyze, Improve and Control. DMAIC is a popularized continuous improvement method. Although there is considerable literature available with the Six Sigma implementations, there is very little research published about the experiences implementing step by step some tools. The goal of this research is to minimize 45% the amount of scrap in the process and as a consequence reduce the amount of money that the company is losing due this reason. In this research were used different techniques to maintain a continuous improvement, demonstrating that the DMAIC methodology is a useful one to have an incremental improvement. Key Terms - B-1, DMAIC, Scrap and Six Sigma.
