As 2016 gets started, there’s reason to believe it will be a good year for quality.
We reached out and asked our clients and partners what their quality goals are for the year. We received some positive and reassuring feedback.
Common quality objectives and a few helpful resources include:
- Establish (or improve) a supplier evaluation program.
- Utilize existing inspection data to identify trends and make improvements.
- Check out a previous blog post where we use inspection data and a fishbone diagram to determine root cause.
- Follow-up when opportunities for improvement exist. For example, consider a process audit when consistent defect trends are noted.
- Evaluate new suppliers.
