FROM UP-STREAM CONTROL TO UP-STREAM ANALYSIIS

FROM UP-STREAM CONTROL TO UP-STREAM ANALYSIIS

Published by WeltVogel
Among the guide lines of the total quality management, there is the up-stream
control. It is necessary in order to discover the factors that influence the process and have
them under control. Once entered in the outline of the economic knowledge of the total
quality, Ontopsychology goes on with the research. Japanese people had discovered
where to search, that is, toward the source (up stream), but they didn’t manage to
understand it, to explain it; remains afterwards always a non-coordinated part for the
efficiency of the business. Here it is where Ontopsychology continues the research,
“analysing it” from the root what slip out of control. And it can do it because it has the
trinacria of the three discoveries which allow the knowledge “from inside” and therefore it is
able to explain the whole internal dynamic which is acting in the company, in the firm (be it
of individual, people or capital). FOIL transforms up-stream control into up-stream
analysis. In practice, up-stream analysis is the ring of conjugation among the whole
economic theory and the advance of the ontopsychological research applied in economy
and business (up stream analysis).

Abstract 
Among the guide lines of the total quality management, there is the up-streamcontrol. It is necessary in order to discover the factors that influence the process and havethem under control. Once entered in the outline of the economic knowledge of the totalquality, Ontopsychology goes on with the research. Japanese people had discoveredwhere to search, that is, toward the source (up stream), but they didn’t manage tounderstand it, to explain it; remains afterwards always a non-coordinated part for theefficiency of the business. Here it is where Ontopsychology continues the research,“analysing it” from the root what slip out of control. And it can do it because it has thetrinacria of the three discoveries which allow the knowledge “from inside” and therefore it isable to explain the whole internal dynamic which is acting in the company, in the firm (be itof individual, people or capital).
FOIL transforms up-stream control into up-stream analysis.
In practice, up-stream analysis is the ring of conjugation among the wholeeconomic theory and the advance of the ontopsychological research applied in economyand business (up stream analysis).

NTRODUCTION
 
The management techniques known as
total quality management 
and
continuous quality improvement 
were developed in Japan. They are centred on the strategicimportance of quality, and thus support the introduction of generalized learning processes,which are supposed to lead to optimal individual and business performance. Corporationsin the Western world are devoting increasing attention to the improvement of quality.Initially the term
quality 
meant conformity to technical specifications, but with time theconcept has broadened, and now indicates the excellence of businesses on the market.Quality becomes a transversal system of direction and integration of activities andfunctions, and at the same time a stimulus to verify the business’s strengths andweaknesses and to improve it (
quality control 
and
quality assurance 
).Client satisfaction was the pivot point in K. Ishikawa’s quality system. We can saythat his quality-based strategy is typically Japanese: while he did take his theoretical basisfrom US research on statistical control, he did not merely imitate it, but developed it andadapted it to the Japanese situation.Ishikawa realized the fundamental contribution of the firm’s top management, whichin fact constituted the key of the whole corporate strategy: it is impossible to makesignificant changes in the management system without complete support from the higherranks of the firm.Ishikawa claimed that, in order for
total quality management 
to be operative withinthe firm, it was necessary for the staff to internalize some fundamental concepts, whichconstitute the aspects of the new mentality of
company-wide quality control 
. These pointsare explained in what follows.1.

Quality first

In-process control 
.8.
Upstream control 
. Taking into consideration what happens in a given processis not enough to control efficiently the process itself. It is necessary to “look upstream” tofind the factors that influence the process, to keep these factors under control. This meansasking oneself the question of
why 
certain problems arise. By means of illustration,imagine that a machine has ceased to function.
 
Why 
does it not work? A fuse has blown.
Why has it blown? Because of an overload.
What caused the overload? The fact that the bearings were not lubricatedenough.
Why? Because the oil pump was not working properly.
Why was the pump not working properly? Because the axle of the pump wasworn.
Why was it worn? Because some mud had entered the pump.In this case, the mud in the pump is the upstream cause of the damage. Repeatedlyasking
why 
some undesirable effect occurs reveals the
real 
cause, and hence also the
real 
solution – in the previous example, applying a filter to the oil pump. If we do not pursue thiskind of analysis, we are likely to stop at an
intermediate solution 
, such as replacing thefuse. An intermediate solution is not sufficient to operate effectively. It is necessary to
