Quality Systems

An increasing number of companies are investing time and effort in transforming their operations, processes and organizations to world-class levels. Many have achieved responsive manufacturing process capabilities, reduced lead times, improved quality and reduced waste. These techniques, in combination with Total Quality Management (TQM), enable the operations to be highly responsive and to produce quality at the source.

This is an underlying theme to our approach in all that we do with our clients. Lean, integrated systems and quality at the source become part of an organization’s cultural change. Even when implementing quality systems, we do not develop processes for process’s sake. Our experience in many of our client organizations confirms that the “Lean Systems Approach” delivers added value and dramatic improvements. Whether it is manufacturing, service industry, public or private sector, we have realized significant improvements saving money and eliminating waste.

Many process steps and procedures satisfy requirements, and are just that - requirements. All others are viewed with a jaundiced eye and are not included if there is non-value added waste. We integrate your quality system with a culture of continuous improvement, involving employees at every step to ensure active participation and transfer of skills.
