Edwards Deming 14 Points for Management Joseph M. Juran Top management commitment, fitness for use Armand Feigenbaum Total Quality Control Philip B. Crosby Quality is Free, zero defectsEthics and Quality Management: Ethics and Quality Management Operations managers must deliver healthy, safe, quality products and services Poor quality risks injuries, lawsuits, recalls, and regulation Organizations are judged by how they respond to problems All stakeholders much be consideredInternational Quality Standards: International Quality Standards ISO 9000 series (Europe/EC) Common quality standards for products sold in Europe (even if made in U.S.) 2000 update places greater emphasis on leadership and customer satisfaction ISO 14000 series (Europe/EC)ISO 14000 Environmental Standard: ISO 14000 Environmental Standard Core Elements: Environmental management Auditing Performance evaluation Labeling Life cycle assessmentTQM: TQM Encompasses entire organization, from supplier to customer Stresses a commitment by management to have a continuing, companywide drive toward excellence in all aspects of products and services that are important to the customerDeming’s Fourteen Points: Deming’s Fourteen Points Create consistency of purpose Lead to promote change Build quality into the product; stop depending on inspection Build long-term relationships based on performance, not price Continuously improve product, quality, and service Start training Emphasize leadership Table 6.1Deming’s Fourteen Points: Deming’s Fourteen Points Drive out fear Break down barriers between departments Stop haranguing workers Support, help, improve Remove barriers to pride in work Institute a vigorous program of education and self-improvement Put everybody in the company to work on the transformation Table 6.1Seven Concepts of TQM: Seven Concepts of TQM Continuous improvement Six Sigma Employee empowerment Benchmarking Just-in-time (JIT) Taguchi concepts Knowledge of TQM toolsContinuous Improvement: Continuous Improvement Represents continual improvement of all processes Involves all operations and work centers including suppliers and customers People, Equipment, Materials, ProceduresShewhart’s PDCA Model: 2. Do Test the plan 3. Check Is the plan working? 4. Act Implement the plan Plan Identify the improvement and make a plan Shewhart’s PDCA Model Figure 6.3Six Sigma: Six Sigma Two meanings Statistical definition of a process that is 99.9997% capable, 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO) A program designed to reduce defects, lower costs, and improve customer satisfactionSix Sigma: Two meanings Statistical definition of a process that is 99.9997% capable, 3.4 defects per million opportunities (DPMO) A program designed to reduce defects, lower costs, and improve customer satisfaction Six Sigma Mean Lower limits Upper limits 3.4 defects/million ±6 2,700 defects/million ±3 Figure 6.4Six Sigma Program: Six Sigma Program Originally developed by Motorola, adopted and enhanced by Honeywell and GE Highly structured approach to process improvement A strategy A discipline - DMAIC 6 Six Sigma: Six Sigma Define critical outputs and identify gaps for improvement Measure the work and collect process data Analyze the data Improve the process Control the new process to make sure new performance is maintained DMAIC ApproachSix Sigma Implementation: Six Sigma Implementation Emphasize defects per million opportunities as a standard metric Provide extensive training Focus on corporate sponsor support (Champions) Create qualified process improvement experts (Black Belts, Green Belts, etc.) Set stretch objectives This cannot be accomplished without a major commitment from top level managementEmployee Empowerment: Employee Empowerment Getting employees involved in product and process improvements 85% of quality problems are due to process and material Techniques Build communication networks that include employees Develop open, supportive supervisors Move responsibility to employees Build a high-morale organization Create formal team structuresQuality Circles: Quality Circles Group of employees who meet regularly to solve problems Trained in planning, problem solving, and statistical methods Often led by a facilitator Very effective when done properlyBenchmarking: Use internal benchmarking if you’re big enough Benchmarking Selecting best practices to use as a standard for performance Determine what to benchmark Form a benchmark team Identify benchmarking partners Collect and analyze benchmarking information Take action to match or exceed the benchmarkBenchmarking Factors for Web Sites:

to complaints Resolve complaints on first contact Use computers to manage complaints Recruit the best for customer service jobsJust-in-Time (JIT): Just-in-Time (JIT) Relationship to quality: JIT cuts the cost of quality JIT improves quality Better quality means less inventory and better, easier-to-employ JIT systemTaguchi Concepts: Taguchi Concepts Engineering and experimental design methods to improve product and process design Identify key component and process variables affecting product variation Taguchi Concepts Quality robustness Quality loss function Target-oriented qualityQuality Robustness: Quality Robustness Ability to produce products uniformly in adverse manufacturing and environmental conditions Remove the effects of adverse conditions Small variations in materials and process do not destroy product qualityQuality Loss Function: Quality Loss Function Shows that costs increase as the product moves away from what the customer wants Costs include customer dissatisfaction, warranty and service, internal scrap and repair, and costs to society Traditional conformance specifications are too simplistic Target-oriented qualityQuality Loss Function: Unacceptable Poor Good Best Fair Quality Loss Function High loss Loss (to producing organization, customer, and society) Low loss Frequency Lower Target Upper Specification Target-oriented quality yields more product in the “best” category Target-oriented quality brings product toward the target value Conformance-oriented quality keeps products within 3 standard deviations Figure 6.5 L = D 2 C

Services: TQM In Services Service quality is more difficult to measure than the quality of goods Service quality perceptions depend on Intangible differences between products Intangible expectations customers have of those productsService Quality: Service Quality The Operations Manager must recognize: The tangible component of services is important The service process is important The service is judged against the customer’s expectations Exceptions will occurService Specifications at UPS: Service Specifications at UPSDeterminants of Service Quality: Determinants of Service Quality Reliability
