Application of DMAIC to Reduce Gas Leakage from Compressor
A Compressor is a very important component for CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) production. Basically the
compressor transforms the natural gas into high pressurized CNG which is in future used as fuel for cooking, industrial and
transportation purpose. It has been observed major and minor leakages during the production of CNG. So in this report we
have tried to apply DMAIC (D- Define, M-Measure, A-Analyse, I-Improve, C-Control) methodology to reduce leakage of
gases from compressor. Since implementing full pledged six sigma is a costly and time consuming approach, we can apply
DMAIC in this process which can increase the process capability of CNG production and ensuring reduced leakage, thus
ensuring better financial return.
