The YTS AB model stands for:

•Define – During this initial phase, we clearly identify the specific metal finishing issue your company faces and create a project charter that serves as a road map for reaching the desired solution.
•Measure – This step helps to establish a baseline that is used to identify the gap between current and desired performance.
•Analyze – During the analysis phase, a list of potential causes of the problem are identified. A process of elimination is then used to hone in on the specific cause.
•Implement – Once the cause of the problem is identified, the next step is to identify and test a host of solutions. When the most effective solution has been identified, a detailed plan is then developed for implementation.

•Control – This phase involves monitoring the implemented solution over a period of time to assess its effectiveness and long-term stability.
