Quality inspection state qi l.jpg
Quality Inspection State (QI)

Inspection is:-

  • Conformity evaluation by observation and judgment accompanied as appropriate by measurement, testing or gauging (3..8.2)

  • After-the-event screening process

  • Application point within the process

  • Thirty party inspection or operator sell inspection

  • Decision scrap, rework, medication, concession

  • No prevention content-does not provide any basis for process improvement

Outline l.jpg

  • Definition of quality and other related terms

  • Historical development of quality management

  • Functions affecting quality

  • Achieving quality assurance

Historical development of qm l.jpg
Historical Development of QM

The development of quality annulment can be defined in four stages:

  • Quality inspection stage (QI)-1920s

  • Quality control stage (QC) - 1950s;

  • Quality assurance stage (QA) - 1970s;

  • Total quality management (QM) stage

Quality assurance stage qa l.jpg
Quality Assurance Stage (QA)

Quality Assurance is:-

  • Part of quality management focused on providing confidence that quality requirements will be fulfilled (3.1.11)

  • Issues of progression from QC to QA

    -Change n emphasis from production to process

  • Third level of quality development

    -Represents a shift from detection to prevention

    -Planed and systematic actions defined

  • Existence of motive quality system –ISO 9000

  • Gender use of QM tools – SPC, QFD, FMEA

  • Quality performance and costs

  • Major customer approval

The iso 9000 concept l.jpg
The ISO 9000 Concept….

  • Represents an international consensus on good management practices for a systematic and generic application of principles and practices based on quality

  • ISO 9000 is a written standard that defines the system that organizations should use to ensure that their products and / or services meet or exceed customer expectations

  • A set of standardized requirements for quality management systems and is applicable to any organization regardless of it’s size or whether public or private sector

Quality defined iso 9000 2000 l.jpg
Quality Defined: ISO 9000:2000

  • Degree to which a set of inherent characteristic fulfils requirements (3.11)

    -Characteristic – distinguishing feature, i.e. physical, sensory, temporal or functional etc (3,5,1)

    -Requirement –need or expectation that is stated or implied or obligatory, i.e. custom or common practices for you (3.1.2)

Total quality management stage l.jpg
Total Quality Management Stage

  • Represents the most advanced stage of quality development today (TQM was first used in 1985 to describe the Japanese style at quality improvement – Naval Air Command System – UK)

  • A Management philosophy

  • Company wide approached centred on application of QM to all aspects of business

    -Focused on the requirements of the customer satisfaction

    -Participation of all employees

    -Recognized the important of suppliers

  • Development of organization culture

  • Continue improvement

  • Benefit of all employees, stakeholders and society

The iso 9000 concept10 l.jpg
The ISO 9000 Concept …

Quality meeting requirements l.jpg
Quality: Meeting Requirements

  • Specifications are imprecise means of conveying subjective aspects i.e.

    -Not everything is measurable, e.g. courtesy or friendliness

  • Thus, conformance to requirements is not necessarily all there is to achieving quality

Quality classification l.jpg

Product quality may be classified into two categories;

Quality of design

  • Quality of conformance

Quality customer satisfaction l.jpg
Quality: Customer Satisfaction

  • Customer Satisfaction or is it meeting requirements?

  • Only true measure of acceptable quality ...

    -Takes account of both subjective and objective interpretations of needs and expectations

    -Correct interpretation of needs and expectation.. Acceptable quality

Evaluating Corrective

Action ……..insert table

Response to a non conformity l.jpg
Response to a Non Conformity?

There are two routes with which the response of an organization to a non conformity

Route 1:

  • Correction action to eliminate a detected non-conformity (ISO 9000:2000 cause (3,6,5)

  • Analysis of cause

  • Corrective action: action to eliminate the cause of a detected non conformity or other undesirable situation (ISO 9000:2000 cause 3,6,5)

Response at a non conformity l.jpg
Response at a Non – Conformity?

My 2 different sequences or routes;

  • Depends on the product type or

  • The situation of the nonconformity; as to which is the correct one to be followed


  • For software, it is inadvisable to implement a correction until the cause is known

  • For a hardware, if a low brake paid warning light were to illuminate in a vehicle and you immediately implemented the correction of replacing the brake pads before examining II the sensor was faulty, you might fall to resolve the problem and would have wasted time and resources.

Outline83 l.jpg

  • Response to non conformity

  • Reviewing responses

  • Objective of the QMS

  • Informed judgment

Response to a non conformity84 l.jpg

There are two routes with which the response of an organization to a non-conformity:

Route 2

. Analysis of cause

. Correction: action to eliminate a detected nonconformity (ISO 9000:2000 cause( 3,6,5)

. Corrective action: action to eliminate the cause of a detected non conformity or other undesirable situation (ISO 9000:2000 cause (3,6,5)

Response to a Non – Conformity?

Response to a non conformity85 l.jpg
Response to a Non Conformity? organization to a non-conformity:

  • Both Correction and Corrective action should be expected when there is a deducted nonconformity

    Correction for example,

  • Correction may involve replacing nonconforming production or replacing an obsolete procedure with the current issue

    Correction action:

  • Cannot be taken without list making a determination of the cause of nonconformity\

Reviewing responses l.jpg
Reviewing responses! organization to a non-conformity:

  • Documentation and objective evidence for corrections causes and corrective action:
