Different Views • User-based – better performance, more features • Manufacturing-based – conformance to standards, making it right the first time • Product-based – specific and measurable attributes of the product
Defining Quality The totality of features and characteristics of a product or service that bears on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs American Society for Quality

Quality Models by Industrial Sector Agents • Capability Maturity Model Integration for improving quality of the Software development industry • Quality model for the automotive industry • Company-driven quality initiatives, e.g. Six sigma quality
Ethics and Quality Management • Operations managers must deliver healthy, safe, quality products and services • Poor quality risks injuries, lawsuits, recalls, and regulation • Organizations are judged by how they respond to problems
TQM Encompasses entire organization, from supplier to customer Stresses a commitment by management to have a continuing, companywide drive toward excellence in all aspects of products and services that are important to the customer
Key Quality Principles (1) • Customer orientation • Everything seen from the view of customer • Results orientation • Measure, track and define results objectively • Process orientation • View changes from a process point of view • Employee orientation • creativity, improvement come from employees. Empower, equip and train them
Key Quality Principles (2) • Measurement orientation • Define measures, collect data and analyze data about performance using TQM tools • Continuous improvement orientation • Focus on improving continuously not in haphazard or impulsive manner • Prevention orientation • Prevention of errors is cheaper and more effective than detecting and removing them • Variation Elimination orientation • Focus on recognizing and eliminating the root causes of variations in your systems.
Tools of TQM • Tools for Generating Ideas • Check sheets • Scatter diagrams • Cause and effect diagrams • Tools to Organize the Data • Pareto charts • Flow charts • Tools for Identifying Problems • Histogram • Statistical process control chart
