With the help of the data collected by completing the tasks, actuals variations will be calculated, and identify the solutions to improve the methods and create the strategies to overcome the errors. Keeping the data in charts, one can verify the differences. Like this solutions will be identified.
ACT: The process is initiated again to ensure the identified solutions are viable or to be improved further to get the best results. After getting the best and effective results and methodologies, it is time to ensure the process flow is effective and without any deviations. More strategies will be identified in the phase for continual improvements. The future projections will be made to easier the process and improve the results of outcomes.
