decision was made
Scott Daniels assembled a team to identify and resolve quality-related issues with
the EIS and to develop a plan to help the medical instruments company prevent
quality problems. The first thing Scotts team did was to research the problem with
the EIS. They created a cause-and-effect diagram. They also create a Pareto chart to
help them analyze the many complaints the help Desk received and documented
about the EIS. After further investigation, Scott and his team found out that many
of the managers using the system were inexperienced in using computer systems
beyond basic office automation systems. They also found out that most users
received no training at all on how to properly access or use the new EIS. There did
not appear to be any major problems with the hardware for the EIS or the users
individual computers. The complaints about reports not giving consistent
information all came from one manager, who had actually misread the reports, so
there were no problems with the way the software was designed. Scott was very
impressed with the quality of the entire project, except for the training. Scott
reportd his teams findings to the project sponsor of the EIS, who was relieved to
find out that the quality problems were not as serious as many people feared.
