Total Quality Management
Many U.S. executives have come to realize that in order to regain their share of the marketplace, a process must be set in motion geared towards achieving higher quality levels, and increased productivity. This can be accomplished through Total Quality Management (TQM). Total Quality Management is a continuous improvement process affecting all functions at all levels of an organization. TQM integrates fundamental technical tools, e.g., Quality Function Deployment, Taguchi Methods, Statistical Process Control, and the Just-In-Time methodology, and existing management techniques into a disciplined approach focused on continuous improvement. The objective of this research report was to examine the ultimate integration of Man, Methods, Machine, and Material; better known as Total Quality Management.
