Steps of Quality Control  Setting Quality standards Apraising conformance to these standards Acting when standards are exceeded Planning for improvements in standards    .

the manufacturer has to give assurance and also give evidence that the product will not fail .Quality Assurance  Definition : For the customer to buy the product/service with confidence and use it for a long time with ease and satisfaction.

Steps of Quality Assurance Develop quality plans  Carryout vendor quality surveys  Carryout product quality audits  Review disposition of non-conforming products  Initiate customers‟ future needs  Co-ordinate document control activity  Upgrade inspection records  .

Concepts of Quality      Variation is the main reason of poor Quality There is no such thing as Quality Problem. the first time The only performance measurement is the cost of Quality The only Performance standard is “ZERO DEFECT” . it is an opportunity to improve There is nothing like economics of is cheaper to do the job right .

Cost Of Quality Prevention Cost…….investment cost  Appraisal Cost……Inspection & Analysis  Internal Cost……Scrap and rework  External Cost……Customer Complaints Product Recalls and Returns  .

Cost of Quality .

.sharply decline as the product becomes stable  .initially high.. gradually declining  External costs……initially high.High throughout  Appraisal costs……low/same throughout  Internal costs……. sharply decline (stability period)  Total Cost……….Contribution of Quality Costs Prevention costs….

the prevention cost will sharply go up and the total cost will also go up  Hence we have to find an economic Balance of Cost and Quality (six sigma)  . the total Cost of Quality keeps coming down  However if we improve the Quality beyond a certain point.Economic Balance of Quality and Costs As we keep improving the Quality.

but gradually this comes down if TQM is implemented in the scientific manner Revise the annual target of COQ downwards year after year .Audit of COQ        Set an annual target of COQ Monitor the actual expenses of COQ All departments to control COQ Evaluate COQ every month/Quarter Compute COQ as a percentage of Sales At the start of TQM activity COQ and COQ as % of Sales is high.
