Research shows that about 80% of companies spend 20 - 30% of their operational costs on poor quality.
Traditional costing systems are seldom organized to support quality improvements and returns on investments
in quality are often unknown. Companies know when there is wastage from poor quality, but are unclear about
quantifying them, to identify critical areas for improvements. Management therefore is unable to make
objective decisions for investing in quality improvements to reduce waste and increase profits. This course
focuses on identifying the cost of poor quality, and the setting up of systems to allow management to take action
and pinpoint quality improvement opportunities.
Apart from the savings to be made in the production process, there are also many opportunities in the other
operations of a manufacturing plant, such as administration, stores, logistics, organization, transportation, etc.
This program is intended to develop the skills of manufacturing staffs to identify and work towards the
elimination of wastes in its many forms.
