Pareto Analysis <ul><li>Technique that displays the degree of importance for each element </li></ul><ul><li>Named after the 19 th century Italian economist </li></ul><ul><li>Often called the 80-20 Rule </li></ul><ul><li>Principle is that quality problems are the result of only a few problems e.g. 80% of the problems caused by 20% of causes </li></ul>

  39. 39. Reliability <ul><li>The probability that a product, service. Or part will perform, as intended. </li></ul><ul><li>No product is guaranteed with 100% certainty to function properly </li></ul><ul><li>High reliability is an important part of customer-oriented quality </li></ul><ul><li>The reliability of a product is a direct function of the reliability of its component parts. </li></ul><ul><li>If all the parts in a product must work for the product to function, then the reliability of the system is computed as product of the reliabilities of the individual components: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>R s = (R 1 )(R 2 )(R 3 )……(R n ) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Where R s = reliability of the product or system </li></ul><ul><li>R 1…n = reliability of components 1 through n </li></ul>
  40. 40. Reliability – contd. <ul><li>The more components a product has, the lower its reliability </li></ul><ul><li>The failure of certain products can be very critical. </li></ul><ul><li>One way to increase product relaibility is to build redundancy into product design in the form of backup parts </li></ul><ul><li>Redundancy is built into the system by placing components in parallel. </li></ul><ul><li>When one component fails, the other takes over </li></ul><ul><li>R s = (Reliability of 1 st component) + {(reliability of 2 nd component) x (probability of needing 2 nd component)} </li></ul>
  41. 41. Process Management <ul><li>A quality product comes from a quality process </li></ul><ul><li>Quality at source </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The belief that it is best to uncover the source of quality problems and eliminate it </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Managing Supplier quality </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The philosophy of TQM extends to concept of quality suppliers and ensures that they engage in the same quality practices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If suppliers meet quality standards, materials do not have to be inspected upon arrival </li></ul></ul>
