When these are analyzed, researched and determine possible solutions and also conducted experiments using the new system.

Improve
This stage perform hypothesis and discuss ideas to improve the system based on the results of previous analysis. Experimenting for the experiment to obtain a standard system to be used as working standards that have been improved.

Control
Make a plan for continued towards improvement we have made to be sustainable. Improvement had always analyzed if there are weaknesses then as a basis for further improvement. In this stage we make some kind of metrics to be monitored and corrected when it began to decline.
