  4. 4. Introduction to TQM What is Total Quality Management? Quality is defined differently and even named and termed differently. Let’s see some definitions ISO 8402: 1994 – All Activities of the overall management function that determine the quality policy, objectives and responsibilities, and implement them by means such as quality control, quality assurance and quality improvement within the quality system Japan Industrial Standard: - As a system of techniques for economically producing goods and services that meets the customer requirements. Fiegenbaum: - Total Quality Control is an effective system for integrating the Quality Development Quality Maintenance, and Quality Improvement efforts of the various groups in an organization so as to enable marketing and engineering production and service at the most economical levels which allows for full customer satisfaction. So, we can define Total Quality Management as follows: TQM is an integrated approach to management for continuous improvement in quality of products manufactured or services rendered. “Integrated” means it is a combination of more than one approach of quality combined in a cohesive manner so that the output or the result is as desired. © sevenSolutions Slide:4
  5. 5. TQM vs. Other Quality Tools ISO for example has different standards for different purposes, for security management, for product quality etc. Implementing ISO involves going through certain guided principles to ensure that correct approach is taken while rendering services with lesser effort to focus on the final product. ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) is a set of standards for quality. However, they are applicable to IT related products and services only. COPC (Customer Operations Performance Center) CSP (Customer Service Provider) and VMO (Vendor Management Organization) are quality standards specifically designed for the processes that are outsourced to a call centre and for the call centre itself. Six Sigma is used when either there is a defect in existing process or we want process to perform at a higher performance level. So, the approach, is limited to the departments/persons/processes involved in the process and at end. It has a definite problem statement and a defined solution. © sevenSolutions Slide:5
  6. 6. TQM vs. Other Quality Tools TQM is an effective System of Quality Development, Quality Maintenance and Quality improvement efforts involving all the departments and groups in an organization to allow economy in production of goods or rendering of services along with complete customer satisfaction. TQM is an older approach that paved way for Six Sigma later on. Six Sigma and TQM go hand in hand, however differ in their origin and approach. TQM was originally conceived by some American Management Gurus, like W. Edwards Deming, Joseph M. Juran and Armand Vallin Feigenbaum. In fact, Armand was the inventor of TQM. © sevenSolutions Slide:6
  7. 7. Ingredients of TQM TQM is an effective System of Quality Development, Quality Maintenance and Quality improvement efforts involving all the departments and groups in an organization to allow economy in production of goods or rendering of services along with complete customer satisfaction. So, the basic ingredients of TQM are: Quality of Products or Processes is responsibility of all involved in the creation and consumption of the same. Aimed at Economy in the cost level Aimed at Satisfaction at the consumption level © sevenSolutions Slide:7

  10. 10. Need and Applicability of TQM E.g., if a company is engaged in Networking, Storage, Power and Procurement Solutions Providing. It may face several challenges, in installation of a solution, the AMC part of it, Crisis handling etc. Generally, the responsibility does not get over where the user procures your product or installs of a solution and signs up for maintenance. To understand how TQM can help in all these activities, let’s look at a diagram now. Engineers Maintenance Finance Communications © sevenSolutions Slide:10

  13. 13. Need of TQM The need of TQM lies in the fact that it is the only Quality tool that can be: 1. Implemented over a larger area 2. Always the end result aimed at Customer or End User satisfaction 3. All Process from Conceiving Idea to Earning Revenue is taken care of 4. Aims are Long Term Success 5. Caters to Manufacturing Process that is more dynamic Engineers 6. Creates Accountability in each entity Maintenance Finance Communications/BPO © sevenSolutions Slide:13
  14. 14. Relationship between TQM, JIT & TPM Total Quality Management has a close relationship between the below two Quality Parameters JIT – Just in Time JIT is a manufacturing Program to identify and eliminate all kinds of waste through Just in Time production and involvement of workforce. Two major wastes are WIP inventory and unnecessary delay in flow time. Implementation methodology are Set up time reduction and Pull System JIT production. TPM – Total Productive Maintenance TQM TPM TPM is a manufacturing Program designed to maximise equipment effectiveness, throughout its entire life through the participation and motivation of entire workforce. TQM – Total Quality Management includes the below in light ot JIT and TPM TQM basic techniques include cross-functional product design, process management, supplier quality management, and customer involvement. JIT basic techniques include set-up time reduction, pull systems production, JIT delivery by suppliers, equipment layout, and daily schedule adherence. TPM basic practices are autonomous and planned maintenance, technology emphasis and proprietary equipment development. © sevenSolutions Slide:14
  15. 15. Relationship between TQM, JIT & TPM The relationships between implementation of TQM, JIT, and TPM and their impact on manufacturing performance was derived by authors , McKonea, Schroeder and Cua. They derived 16 Principles which are essential elements of TQM, JIT and TPM. 1. Cross-Functional Product Design (TQM Principle) 2. Process Management (TQM Principle) 3. Supplier Quality Management (TQM Principle) 4. Customer Involvement (TQM Principle) 5. Information and Feedback (Common to all three) 6. Committed Leadership (Common to all three) 7. Strategic Planning (Common to all three) 8. Cross-Functional Training (Common to all three) 9. Employee Involvement (Common to all three) 10. Set-up time reduction (JIT Principle) 11. Pull System Production (JIT Principle) 12. Delivery by Supplies (JIT Principle) 13. Equipment Layout (JIT Principle) 14. Daily Schedule Adherence (JIT Principle) 15. Autonomous & Planned Maintenance (TPM Principle) 16. Technology Emphasis (TPM Principle) The JIT and TPM Principles are applicable strictly to manufacturing industries. For us, with today’s scope, we would discuss the 4 TQM and 5 Common Principles in detail. © sevenSolutions Slide:15

  19. 19. TQM Structure in the Org. Management plans the activities for TQM facilitation Different applicable Quality Standards are integrated into the Process and Operation The Quality Standards ensure Supply Chain Management to be correct and smooth The Quality Standards also ensure the final product to be as per customer requirement or better Correct inflow and outflow of services and products keep customers satisfied So, overall Operation runs on its Optimum Capacity always, so that Cost, Revenue and Customer Satisfaction are always on minimum defect level © sevenSolutions Slide:19
  20. 20. 1 – Cross-Functional Product Design (TQM) Cross-functional product design is a widely used method for involving different functional areas in new product/process development. It is used when either an existing product has to under go change or a new product is planned or conceived to be launched. The advantages are: 1. Previous Experience are used 2. Buy in of all departments ensures minimum resistance and ease in change management 3. All factors, including Finance, Engineering, Cross Functional Maintenance, Marketing, Operations etc. are taken care of Interaction 4. Sustainability of the Product increases 5. Any setback in future is handled with planned procedures © sevenSolutions Slide:20
  21. 21. 1 – Cross-Functional Product Design (TQM) The Cross-Functional Product Design should be measured to eliminate chances of a Product design or re-design to miss out on inputs of any Function and to ensure, it is adhered to, at first place. Measurement Parameters are: 1. Direct labour employees are involved to a great extent (on teams or consulted) before introducing new products or making product changes. 2. Manufacturing engineers are involved to a great extent before the introduction of new products. 3. There is little involvement of manufacturing and quality people Cross Functional in the early design of products, before they reach the plant. Interaction 4. Design is conceived in teams, with members from a variety of areas (marketing, manufacturing, etc.) to introduce new products. 5. The time to introduce new products is reduced by designing product and process together. © sevenSolutions Slide:21
  22. 22. 2 – Process Management (TQM) Process management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, techniques and systems. Its primary motive is to define, visualize, measure, control, report and improve processes. The goal of PM is to meet customer requirements profitably. It is also called BPM (Business Process Management) and it is different from Program Management or Project Management. The advantages are: 1. Processes are defined as per Quality Parameters and has defined SOPs 2. There can be step-vise approach to a mature Process Management (diagram) 3. It is an ongoing Process, and helps to keep pace with the market change and demand 4. Defects are minimized, Cost and Revenue Optimized and Customer Satisfaction Maximized. © sevenSolutions Slide:22
  23. 23. 2 – Process Management (TQM) Measuring Process Management is easy. Any PM methodology implemented will come with its own Fail-safe mechanism and check points for checking its proper running. However, to ensure that PM overall is followed in the organization, the following steps can be taken. Measurement Parameters are: 1. A large per cent of the equipment or processes on the shop floor should be under statistical quality control always 2. Extensive use of statistical techniques is done to reduce variance in processes. 3. Variance creates defects in final products that increase waste and cost. 4. Charts and Graphs are used to determine whether our manufacturing processes are in control, Trending’s are done and each repeatable process is gauged to detect Variance. 5. All Processes are monitored using statistical process control © sevenSolutions Slide:23
  24. 24. 3 – Supplier Quality Management (TQM) Supplier Quality Management ensures that the supplier of raw materials is certified for Quality, example ISO certified. Or the Organization has its own Quality check mechanism that has certified the Supplier. Some Management Guru’s have created a separate chain called SCM (Supply Chain Management) that studies the efforts in improving the standards and maintaining the high standards of Supplier so that the basic input to the Process Management is flawless and optimized. The advantages are: 1. Quality of raw materials are ensured 2. Timely delivery is ensured 3. Cost effective inventory management can be done 4. Supplier back up ensure least disruption in production 5. Competitive price can be negotiated © sevenSolutions Slide:24
  25. 25. 3 – Supplier Quality Management (TQM) To ensure that Supplier Quality Management is given priority, the following steps can be taken care of, along with creating responsibility centers for maintaining the same. Measurement Parameters are: 1. Quality is the number one criterion in selecting suppliers 2. Mostly those suppliers are used which are certified by the organization 3. Suppliers are certified, or qualified, for quality as per Market Standard © sevenSolutions Slide:25
  26. 26. 4 – Customer Involvement (TQM) Customer Involvement signifies the inputs of end user being a criterion in deciding the future course of action to improve quality and productivity. This steps means simply having an effective mode of communication between the Organization and End User so that there is a periodic and frequent interaction between them. The communication extracts useful information from the Customers regarding their views on the product. The methodology should be such that elicits information without much of an effort to the end user and should briefly point out and take views that are most beneficial as inputs to the Manufacturing decision at a late stage. The advantages are: 1. Expectations of customers are factored into the design. 2. Re-work is minimized 3. Customers feel involved that boosts market 4. Pre-Assessment of market is determined 5. Anticipation is created in market that also boosts future growth © sevenSolutions Slide:26
  27. 27. 4 – Customer Involvement (TQM) Measurement of Customer Involvement is apparent if the feedback mechanism from Customers exist and are checked seriously and regularly. It also needs to be checked, how seriously customers take the mechanism and their responsiveness along with the center of responsibility behind the mechanism. Measurement Parameters are: 1. Frequent and close contact with customers 2. Feedback on quality and delivery performance from customers 3. Highly responsiveness to customers’ needs 4. Regular survey of customers’ requirements © sevenSolutions Slide:27
  28. 28. 5 – Information and Feedback (Common) Information and Feedback is not a strictly TQM practice, however it must be clubbed with TQM practices as discussed until now. It is also important to JIT and TPM. This signifies that the information on Productivity, Quality of manufacturing for last chain/process is available to the employees, especially to the ones who are involved in the process of manufacturing. It also signifies that the frequency of machine breakdowns, defect rates etc. information is readily available. The advantages are: 1. First hand information on fail safe is available 2. Imperative Changes can be incorporated soon 3. Identifications of workable and non-workable feedback can be differentiated and client expectation is set 4. Cyclic Process of Feedback getting into further enhancement ensures the customer satisfaction to increase © sevenSolutions Slide:28
  29. 29. 5 – Information and Feedback (Common) Measuring Information and Feedback Principle is followed or not is very important. This paves way for the TQM, TPM to be implemented without fail and any defect taken care of at its inception. The different ways implementation of Information and Feedback Principle can be measured are as below. Measurement Parameters are: 1. Charts showing defect rates and schedule compliance are posted on the shop floor 2. Charts plotting the frequency of hardware/software breakdowns are posted on the shop floor 3. Information on quality performance is readily available to employees 4. Information on productivity is readily available to employees © sevenSolutions Slide:29
  30. 30. 6 – Committed Leadership (Common) As the name signifies, it states that the Leadership team is dedicated to the overall Vision of being a Quality Leader. It signifies that the Leadership Team should have planned their approach to accommodate Quality initiatives in the process of manufacturing. Leadership should be actively involved in the pointers discussed until now and the ones we are going to discuss henceforth. Leadership should be well informed before taking any decision regarding manufacturing deviations or innovations. The advantages are: 1. Confident Teams and Individuals 2. Dedication and Fear of low Quality ensured 3. No assumption based decisions and only parameter of success is correct steps 4. Customer Satisfaction becomes guaranteed © sevenSolutions Slide:30
  31. 31. 6 – Committed Leadership (Common) Committed Leadership is an aspect that is so easily seen in the Culture and DNA of an organization, that it may not be measured. However, as per Quality Standards, since all characteristics should be measured, so as Committed Leadership. Measurement Parameters are: 1. All major department heads within plant accept their responsibility for quality 2. Plant management provides personal leadership for quality products and quality improvement 3. All major department heads within our plant work towards encouraging JIT production 4. Our top management strongly encourages employee involvement in the production process 5. Plant management creates and communicates a vision focused on quality improvements 6. Plant management is personally involved in quality improvement projects © sevenSolutions Slide:31
  32. 32. 7 – Strategic Planning (Common) Strategy or Policies are made at the uppermost levels of Leadership. TQM wants that there should be a Strategic Plan for the organization which is clear and motivated. Generally an organizations strategy revolves around its Vision and Mission. With a clear strategy, it is easy for the Management, Manufacturing Plant and other departments to develop their own pointers to drive towards the common goal. This requires a methodical approach, that is TQM or any other Quality initiative. The advantages are: 1. Goal is defined 2. Misinterpretation of Key deliverables are avoided 3. Larger goal of the organization makes the smaller missions well defined and time bound 4. Leadership’s ease of maneuvering the teams and management is increased towards the Vision © sevenSolutions Slide:32
  33. 33. 7 – Strategic Planning (Common) Measuring the Strategic Planning is significant, as its existence sometimes is not very clear that creates scope of ambiguities. Also, existence of a Vision not necessarily means the Goal is well defined. Measurement Parameters are: 1. The manufacturing plant has a formal strategic planning process which results in a written mission, long-range goals and strategies for implementation 2. Plant management is not included in the formal strategic planning process. It is conducted at higher levels in the corporation (This is because, Plant Management needs to follow the Strategy formed at the higher level) 3. Plant management routinely reviews and updates a long-range strategic plan © sevenSolutions Slide:33
  34. 34. 8 – Cross-Functional Training (Common) Employees or Plant Workers needs to be cross trained in handling multiple kinds of tasks. This ensures two aspects. One, less tasks would be in pipeline due to unavailability of skilled employee, reducing waste of time and probable materials. Two, less employees would be without work due to not being able to do an available job when primary employee responsible for the job is not present, reducing waste of time and probably material again. The advantages are: 1. Minimization of wait time for backlog work 2. Minimization of idle time of skillset 3. Reduction of cost for dedicated skills 4. Multiple back ups and accountability 5. Less of human resource and more of skill banks © sevenSolutions Slide:34
  35. 35. 8 – Cross-Functional Training (Common) Measurement of Implementation of Cross Functional Training is not just base lining that each of the employee has additional skills other than her/his own. It can be measured via the below guidelines. Measurement Parameters are: 1. Employees should receive training to perform multiple tasks (Training) 2. Employees should learn how to perform a variety of tasks/jobs (OJT) 3. Employees should be cross-trained so that they can fill in for others if necessary (Back ups) 4. Employee should be made secondary back ups for one Primary skill holder (Implementation) © sevenSolutions Slide:35
  36. 36. 9 – Employee Involvement (Common) As per the name, it simply means that the employees are involved in problem solving and getting around issues that may or are cause of production to go down or stop. Employee Involvement ensures that the solution derived has the accent of employees and any issue faced by the employees in the production are addressed automatically. The advantages are: 1. Less Negative turnover 2. Skill bank enhancement 3. Increase in accountability of employees due to being engaged in problem solving and product design 4. Solutioning is fast due to prior knowledge of product engineering and quality enhancement © sevenSolutions Slide:36
  37. 37. 9 – Employee Involvement (Common) Assessing Employee Involvement and its degree is essential for the Management to forecast employee behaviour and plan in advance. Also, it ensures that employees are not working in Silos and each Product design and enhancement has maximum ideas involved and accountability created. Measurement Parameters are: 1. During problem solving sessions, all team members’ opinions and ideas are considered before making a decision 2. Teams are formed to solve problems 3. Many problems are solved through small group sessions (say, in past 3 years) 4. Problem solving teams help improve manufacturing processes at this plant 5. Employee teams are encouraged to try to solve their problems as much as possible © sevenSolutions Slide:37
  38. 38. TQC – Total Quality Control TQC is nothing but TQM only. In definition and approach both are the same. Sometimes, TQM is called TQC because TQM is an approach to Quality Control that goes beyond Statistical Measurement and Regulation. It suggests that a complete overview and re-evaluation of the specification of a product is necessary, rather than just considering a set of alterable features within an existing product. If the original specification does not reflect the correct quality requirements, quality cannot be inspected or manufactured into the product. © sevenSolutions Slide:38

  41. 41. TQM and Six Sigma Six Sigma is a methodology and TQM is an overall practice that encompasses several Statistical Quality Methodology and Initiatives along with factoring human elements TQM is a Framework of Principles and Systems Approach. All nine Elements we discussed for TQM, there are few which can use Six Sigma as a method of usage. Generally, a Six Sigma approach covers one or more areas of TQM Elements As per Philip Crosby: Pre-determined requirements, design activities and manufacturing practices are the basis of quality product and quality definition with be ‘conformance to requirement’. This definition ensures zero defect product as 100% conformance to requirement is the only acceptable quality measure. So it is Management’s responsibility to create correct requirements. As per Joseph M. Juran: Quality is the final product being in ‘conformance to specifications’ or ‘conformance to standards’. However, in terms of manufacturing, this definition is not accurate to T because at a Managerial Level, conformance to specification is only one of the many means to reach at end product that is 100% defect free. © sevenSolutions Slide:41

  44. 44. TQM and its Principles in relation to 6σ 1. Quality Integration Quality cannot be achieved by applying inspection at end of the process. Rather, Quality is achieved by integrating all interdependent components and measuring quality for each of them. 2. Quality First (Prevention, not Inspection) Quality is neither a holistic approach nor an audit mechanism. It has to be engineered into each micro level elementary step and has to be integrated from the very beginning. 3. Customer Orientation As per TQM, an Organization’s Objectives, Structural and Managerial process should be established to serve the Customer. 3. Continuous Improvement With increasing demands from Customer, Competitors with cutting edge technology and harsh political conditions, the only means to survive is CI. 3. Fact based decisions A Manufacturing business needs quicker decisions in the face of cost control and market penetration. With Facts and Figures, decision taken is risk-proof to a great extent. © sevenSolutions Slide:44
  45. 45. PDCA PDCA Cycles are an approach to Operations and Manufacturing that constitutes Plan, Do, Check and Act Which helps in Problem Identification, Displaying Improvement Areas, Clearing Ambiguities and Acknowledging the Solution, finally, implementing it. The PDCA Steps are: 1. Standardize an operation and activities. 2. Measure the standardized operation (find cycle time and amount of in-process inventory) 3. Gauge measurements against requirements 4. Innovate to meet requirements and increase productivity 5. Standardize the new, improved operations 6. Continue cycle ad infinitum © sevenSolutions Slide:45
  46. 46. TQM System Approach Quality Planning starts from Quality Control is specific to Leadership, enforced by the Center of Excellence of QC Management and Implemented by and forms major part ot Engineers Routine Quality Job Quality Improvement is a Cycle in which all Departments and Individuals play equally important role © sevenSolutions Slide:46
  47. 47. TQM System Approach 1. Strategic Quality Management Systematic approach for Setting and Meeting Quality Goals throughout the Organization 2. Quality Planning Customer needs are to be determined and products needs to be developed to meet those needs 3. Quality Control Evaluation of current Quality Standards to determine if they meet the requirements. If they do not, to take necessary measures and if they do, for a longer span, to increase standards 3. Quality Improvement The steps taken towards Organizational Change that is either planned or forecasted. The change is for biological growth or more market share © sevenSolutions Slide:47
