What is Quality?
Quality is a broad term that covers all aspects of business operations from planning and pre production activities, to designing, building and the execution of works, testing, delivery, customer feedback and post delivery activities and more. It covers suppliers and service providers and a vast variety of maintenance, documentation, traceability, storage conditions and more.
The benefits of having a good Quality Management system in place, include the following:
1) An ability to reduce waste (defects, time/motion, damaged equipment, bad testing, etc.)
2) An ability to increase compliance through a protocol of routine audits, inspections and monitoring and measurement activities.
3) An ability to improve customer satisfaction through questionnaires and surveys etc.
4) An ability to lift your Safety and Environmental systems just by virtue of keeping your workplace organised, your equipment in good order, your production waste properly managed and more.
If you think that Quality Management is time consuming, we can assure you that the amount of both time and money spent on the handling of production defects and their immediate and long term impact on business brands is much greater than any time you are ever likely to spend on routine quality assurance. On the other hand – quality checks do take time… which is a pain. So, what can be done to reduce the time spent on controlling the quality of operations without compromising on the quality of the end product or service?
