Evolution of quality management

Level 1: Inspection: - Measure the characteristics of a product and compare them with its specifications; - The goal here is the fitness of standards. This is the passive "inspecting" attitude.

Hoshin planning (Policy Deployment)

The process used to identify and address critical business needs and develop the capability of employees, achieved by aligning company resources at all levels and applying the PDCA cycle to consistently achieve critical results

Force field analysis

It is a powerful method of gaining a comprehensive overview of the different forces acting on a potential organizational change issue, and for assessing their source and strength.

Gantt Chart
A Gantt chart is a type of bar chart that illustrates a project schedule. Gantt charts illustrate the start and finish dates of the terminal elements and summary elements of a project.

Brainstorming is a tool used by teams to bring out the ideas of each individual and present them in an orderly fashion to the rest of the team.

Benefits of brainstorming

1) Encourages creativity 2) Equalizes involvement by all team members 3) Fosters a sense of ownership

Set a time limit for the session

-Brainstorming should be a rapid generation of ideas, so do it quickly; 5-15 minutes works well. If the time limit has expired and ideas are still being generated, you can extend the time limit at five-minute intervals. - Remember! facilitator You are just a

Set a time limit for the session

State the topic to be brainstormed in the form of a written clear question, every body can see it

Set a time limit for the session

Collect everyones ideas; Structured or unstructured format for calling out ideas (Adv vs Disadv)

Set a time limit for the session

Record ideas and display them where everyone can see

- To avoid misinterpretation and duplication and stimulate creative thinking by others - Written down exactly as spoken by the team member, dont interpret -Try to generate a long list as possible

Set a time limit for the session

Clarify each idea to ensure that all members have the same understanding of it

Set a time limit for the session

Eliminate duplications, after asking participants, other wise they are kept separate

Follow the rules, or dont call it brainstorming!

Affinity Diagram
Usually, an affinity diagram is used to refine a brainstorm into something that makes sense and can be dealt with more easily. It is recommended to be used when facts or thoughts are uncertain and need to be organized, when preexisting ideas or paradigms need to be overcome, when ideas need to be clarified, and when unity within a team needs to be created.

Selection Grid
It is a quantitative technique used to rank the multi-dimensional options of an option set. A basic selection grid consists of establishing a set of criteria options which are scored and summed to gain a total score which can then be ranked.

Selection Grid
A weighted selection grid operates in the same way as the basic decision matrix but introduces the concept of weighting the criteria in order of importance. The more important the criteria the higher the weighting it should be given. Each of the potential options are scored and multiplied by the weighting given to each of the criteria in order to produce a result.

Task List

A simple to do list!

Indicators are quantitative measures of a specific part of a process or of an outcome. By themselves, they dont directly measure quality, rather, they help provide data that when analyzed, give information about quality

Check list

A simple way of collecting data

Control charts
A control chart is a graph or chart with limit lines, called control lines. The purpose of drawing a control chart is to detect any changes in the process that would be evident by any abnormal points listed on the graph from the data collected. It is a method of control, monitoring and improvement.

The purpose of a Histogram is to take the data that is collected from a process and then display it graphically to view how the distribution of the data, centers itself around the mean, or main specification. Histograms show the center of the data, the spread of the data and any data skewness or outliers.

Scatter diagram
The Scatter Diagram is a Quality Tool that can be used to show the relationship between "paired data, i.e: shows correlation.
Strong r = Higher correlation, in either sides
