High performing improvement organizations are fundamentally focused on affirmatively adding value to customers and eliminating waste in everything they do. One of the significant wastes in many organizations, either looking at it from a rolled yield or complete cost perspective is that of defects (not perfect 1st time complete and correct or simply “things gone wrong”). The Quality/Lean/Six Sigma practitioners often find themselves addressing this type of opportunity. Fortunately there are a number of powerful methods that can give better insight into the problem, generate better solutions (and even provide knowledge based potential solutions when faced with a particular problem) so that this waste and it's cost are significantly reduced. It is important for the practitioner to realize what the methods are, when to target their application, the method’s basic approach and the size of benefit that can be achieved. This presentation will explain and position several of the methods that help add value and reduce defects.
