Within the discussion of continuous improvement methods, they added descriptions of and references to several case studies. These case studies, which include applications in the service industry, give the reader a broader context on how to apply many of the methods discussed in a real-life scenario.

In particular, some of these case studies are related to quality in the service industry. Additionally, the editors updated discussions of and references to new technology important to the quality professional, such as Industry 4.

Overcoming Barriers to Quality Improvement The two main themes of Part I are a broad perspective on the quality profes- sion and the human element in quality.

Areas such as strategic planning and leadership may require additional training and years of experience before full competency is achieved. In the same vein, developing communication skills and removing barriers to quality improvement could be callings of a lifetime. After a careful study of this chapter, you will have a clear idea of the elements upon which the profession of quality engineering is based.

Remember Body of Knowledge I. Joseph M. Juran has traced the practice of the quality profes- sion back to the ancient Egyptians and the building of the pyramids. For centu- ries, quality was intrinsically associated with craftsmanship, and each craftsman controlled all aspects of the final product of his craft.

This changed dramatically with the Industrial Revolution. Modern quality practices originated in two stages: Workers stopped checking the quality of their work and instead passed it on to specially trained inspectors. At the same time hundreds of American companies were called upon to manufacture goods to the most exacting requirements. Many quality control techniques, such as PartI.

Chapter 1: Quality Philosophies and Foundations 3 acceptance sampling and process control charts, which were merely encouraged before the war, became mandatory as part of the defense effort.

Two of the lead- ing practitioners of the quality profession—W. Edwards Deming and Joseph M. Juran—established their professional credentials during this time. Both later went to Japan to teach the defeated nation statistical and management tools. In the s it became apparent that the Japanese had learned their lessons well: Americans, the former masters, made repeated trips to the Japanese, the former students, to explore Japanese successes and to bring home proven Japanese methods.

As he struggled with this task, he recognized the superb skills of George Edwards, who was then head of inspection engineering at Bell Telephone Laboratories. Edwards became the first president of the society and helped establish policies that guide its operation to this day.

The first three awards the society created to recognize these three pioneers of quality were the Brumbaugh Award, the Shewhart Medal, and the Edwards Medal. In time, the society created numerous other awards, each honoring a specific hero of the profession and recognizing outstanding achievement in a par- ticular area of the profession. Walter A. Shewhart The industrial age was approaching its second century when a young engineer named Walter A.

Shewhart altered the course of industrial history by bringing together the disciplines of statistics, engineering, and economics. Shewhart wanted statistical theory to serve the needs of industry. He exhib- ited the restlessness of one looking for a better way. While the literature of the day discussed the stochastic nature of both biological and technical systems, and spoke of the possibility of applying sta- tistical methodology to these systems, Shewhart actually showed how it was to be done.

In that respect, the field of quality control can claim a genuine pioneer in Shewhart. His book Economic Control of Quality of Manufactured Product, published in , is regarded as a complete and thorough exposition of the basic principles of quality control. Called upon frequently as a consultant, Shewhart served the War Department, the United Nations, the government of India, and others.

He was a fellow of numerous societies and in became the first honorary member of the American Society for Quality. Many consider the Shewhart Medal, given for out- standing technical contributions to the quality profession, to be by far the most prestigious award the American Society for Quality offers.

Management and Leadership W. Juran The impact of the Bell Telephone System on the quality profession is almost beyond belief. Shewhart, Edwards, Juran, and Deming all worked for and learned from the Bell System in one way or another. Edwards and Shewhart retired as Bell System employees.

Both Juran and Deming went on from the Bell System to become world-famous consultants and authors. Deming became the best-known quality expert in the United States. He deliv- ered his message on quality not only throughout the United States but also around the world. The heart of his quality strategy is the use of statistical qual- ity control to identify special causes erratic, unpredictable and common causes systemic of variation.

Statistical tools provide a common language for employ- ees throughout a company and permit quality control efforts to be widely dif- fused. Each employee assumes considerable responsibility for the quality of his or her own work. Those in traditional quality control functions are then able to take more proactive roles in the quality improvement effort. Deming introduced statistical quality control to the Japanese in the early s when Japan was recovering from World War II and trying to overcome a reputa- tion for shoddy workmanship.

Instead, management had to accept responsibility for quality. Juran, like Deming, built his quality reputation in America and then took his expertise to Japan in the s. The two complemented each other well in Japan, as Deming showed the use of statistical tools and Juran taught the tech- niques of managing for quality. An economist, Vilfredo Pareto, had noticed the phenomenon but it was Juran who applied it to quality improvement.

Juran recognized that to improve quality requires a completely different approach from what is needed to maintain existing quality. He demonstrated this idea in his book Managerial Breakthrough, first published in , and later con- densed his ideas into the Juran trilogy: Quality Philosophies and Foundations 5 1.

Quality control: Quality improvement: Quality planning: Create consistency of purpose toward improvement of products and services, with a plan to become competitive and to stay in business.

Decide to whom top management is responsible. Adopt the new philosophy. We are in a new economic age. We can no longer live with commonly accepted levels of delays, mistakes, defective materials, and defective workmanship.

Cease dependence on mass inspection.

Require instead statistical evidence that quality is built-in to eliminate need for inspection. downloading managers have a new job and must learn it. End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag. Instead, depend on meaningful measures of quality, along with price. Eliminate suppliers who cannot qualify with statistical evidence of quality.

Find problems.

Institute modern methods of training on the job. Institute modern methods of supervision of production workers. The responsibility of foremen must be changed from sheer numbers to quality. Improvement of quality will automatically improve productivity. Management must prepare to take immediate actions on reports from foremen concerning barriers such as inherited defects, machines not maintained, poor tools, fuzzy operation definitions.

Drive out fear, so that everyone may work effectively for the company. Break down barriers between departments. People in research, design, sales, and production must work as a team, to foresee problems of production that may be encountered with various materials and specifications.

Eliminate numerical goals, posters, and slogans for the workforce, asking for new levels of productivity without providing methods.

Eliminate work standards that prescribe numerical quotas. Remove barriers that stand between the hourly worker and his right to pride of workmanship.

Institute a vigorous program of education and retraining. Create a structure in top management that will push every day on the above 13 points. Figure 1. Management and Leadership the need for top managers to become personally involved in order for a quality effort to be successful and for middle and lower-level managers to learn the lan- guage and thinking of top management—money, for example—in order to secure their involvement.

He repeatedly empha- sized that major improvement could be achieved only on a project-by-project basis. The basis for selecting projects was return on investment, now a major component of Six Sigma. Besides those mentioned previously, the following individuals have become famous for their contributions. Philip Crosby popularized the concept of zero defects and established the Crosby Quality College.

Armand Feigenbaum coined the phrase total quality control and tirelessly preached its fundamentals around the world. Genichi Taguchi, a Japanese engineer, developed a unique system for designing industrial experiments. Eliyahu Goldratt created an improvement system built around the phrase theory of constraints. Kaizen, a Japanese word that translates roughly into English as improvement, means that workers perform consistent, gradual improvements as they do their regular jobs.

The goals of kaizen include the elimination of waste defined as activities that add cost but do not add value , just-in-time delivery, production load leveling of amount and types, standardized work, paced moving lines, right-sized equipment, and others.

Its application is not limited to quality, but quality profes- sionals have effectively applied it. When done correctly it humanizes the work- place, eliminates hard work both mental and physical , and teaches people how to use the scientific method and to detect waste. Some companies have created a spin-off called kaizen blitz. This is a carefully orchestrated intensive activity designed to produce a significant improvement quickly.

Theory of constraints TOC has become a popular catchphrase for a system improvement program.

It is based on the principle that one—and often more than one—specific factor or element constrains, or prevents, the system from reaching a more desirable state of existence. Goldratt had an insight: This leads to a view of the company where the constraint guides all strategic decisions.

He co-authored The Goal, the first famous business novel that informed and entertained many thousands of managers and engineers as it showed the path to success by applying his concepts. TOC, some- PartI. Quality Philosophies and Foundations 7 times referred to as constraint management, is being actively developed by a loosely coupled community of practitioners around the world.

Lean philosophy is exemplified by its terse name: It was originally called lean manufacturing but has migrated into many different service industries. A good example of lean philosophy is just-in-time JIT , where a process is managed so that parts arrive just prior to their actual insertion into the assembly.

Another is the famed 5S system, which teaches the benefits of keeping the workplace clean, avoiding waste, and so on. Six Sigma is the final quality philosophy mentioned in this section, but this is not the final time it will be mentioned. Six Sigma has combined and exploited the strengths of the other approaches to the extent that it now dominates all the others. There are journals, conferences, study groups, and consulting firms devoted solely to Six Sigma.

Six Sigma combines effective communications, organization of effort, financial accountability, and strong techniques to enable organizations to make sustained improvements over a period of time. Improvements such as cost reduction, quality improvement, cycle time reduction, improved morale, greater profits, and so forth, are all attainable through Six Sigma, but these improvements require a great deal of dedicated work, dedication to the process, and continuous training and learning.

See Chapter 29 for more about Six Sigma. Quality means different things to different people and in different situations. This list gives some of the informal definitions of quality: It works in nonprofit organizations such as schools, healthcare and social services, and government agencies.

Management and Leadership Results—performance and financial—are the natural consequence of effective quality management. Table 1. Formal Definitions of Quality The above definitions show that quality is difficult to define, and no one definition can be all-inclusive. The word quality is highly nuanced, and allows many inter- pretations.

The reader quickly comes to realize that most of the def- initions are quite specialized and not really pertinent to the practice of quality engineering. It gets worse: One of these meanings, from the ISO standard, is simultaneously more comprehen- sive, more explicit, and more authoritative: So here you have four quite different definitions and each can be successfully defended as the best in the right situation.

There probably never will be an ulti- mate definition of this all-important word, as the definition is constantly evolving. Quality Philosophies and Foundations 9 The views of eight well-known quality experts appear in the July issue of Quality Progress. Although these experts differ on details and nuances, some common themes appear in all their different quality philosophies: Quality improvement is a never-ending process.

Top management commitment, knowledge, and active participation are critical.

Management is responsible for articulating a company philosophy, goals, measurable objectives, and a change strategy. All employees in the organization need to be active participants. A common language and set of procedures are important to communicate and support the quality effort.

A process must be established to identify the most critical problems, determine their causes, and find solutions. Changes in company culture, roles, and responsibilities may be required. The difference between strategic planning and deployment of the strategy can be understood this way: Apply Body of Knowledge I. The strengths and weak- nesses of the organization are assessed and forecasts are generated to predict how market opportunities and competitive threats will change during the time period covered by the study.

This analysis is sometimes called a SWOT the acronym for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats study. Ideally, strategic plan- ning for quality will address each aspect of the SWOT analysis.Often a single fact, procedure, or definition is required. Data Accuracy. Probability Terms and Concepts.

The strengths of the organization can be leveraged to create or sustain com- petitive advantage. Deming introduced statistical quality control to the Japanese in the early s when Japan was recovering from World War II and trying to overcome a reputa- tion for shoddy workmanship. Start on. Your list has reached the maximum number of items.

In order to earn the right to serve as the technical advisors to this next generation of more enlightened managers, all quality professionals must not only seek training in the more advanced technical methods but also must become the masters of these tools and be perceived as such by senior managers.
