  • Leads to high levels of waste.

TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT
  • Main aim is to “get it right, first time, every time”
  • This means that the firm wants to produce the perfect product all the time.
  • TQM does not allow for all errors.
  • Quality is checked from the supplies the firm gets right through to the final product.
slide7
TQM assumes that the next person to get the product is the “customer”, not just the person who buys it.
slide8
TQM requires:
  • An understanding that the needs of the consumer is at the centre
  • A commitment from everyone
  • Everyone is involved in setting the standard
  • Focus on teamwork
  • View as being long-term
  • A constant search for improvement
  • Partnership with suppliers
