Manufacturing is steadily moving to automation, but that does not absolve the organization from developing the talent of the organization. Machines can execute as defined, but solving problems quickly are outside the boundaries of machines presently. We need an approach that allows our organization to continuously improve without the disruptions and risks that come with large sweeping changes. Additionally, those large sweeping types of changes often fail as the organization is not prepared culturally for the transition. That is where Shewhart / Deming cycle and TQM enters. With this process and tools, we can steadily and incrementally improve our organization's capability and reduce cost due to quality issues all along the way.
• Learn the steps in the Shewhart / Deming Cycle
• Learn the role of measurements in the cycle
• Learn the fundamental tools for discovery and understanding the present situations
• Learn how to introduce improvement actions in a controlled and low risk approach.
