Building up a business is hard work. It requires patience, perseverance, and an unrivalled strive for perfection. You must include your entire team in the effort to make your company the best in its field. And that means you must give them the tools needed to fulfil your aim. Quality control is everyone’s responsibility. But in order to make this idea a reality you must re-think and reconceptualize how you enforce it.
Periodic inspections by managers or teams of experts dedicated to the job will create the kind of top-down quality control that is ineffective and futile. You must instead work from the bottom-up. You must have quality control program that puts each person involved in line operations in the role of QA management. At the first sign that something has gone wrong with production the people involved in it should note down the problem, its nature, and who has been contacted to resolve it. This is a much more efficient and effective way to do QA; it will also get you the results you want.
The best way to achieve these results is to turn your workplace into a paperless factory. Instead of employing armies of inspectors who are tasked with documenting errors and sending up reports you can create an advanced factory-wide computer system that allows shop floor employees to take the lead and the initiative in such efforts. It will improve line performance and allow your people to thrive and flourish as workers.
Making this change will yield almost instant results. Straightaway your people will begin to see themselves as part of the QA team and will act accordingly. It will ensure that problems that have been reported do not get lost, as tends to be common with so much documentation. It will give everyone an easier way to track specific problems and errors and move swiftly to correct them.
If you are trying to improve or re-invent your business, this is the kind of process you want to implement, and you want to implement it immediately.
Only specialized vendors offer this kind of technology. You want to ensure you get the service and product that will help you meet your goals. The company you work with should also provide your team with the training they need to operate the devices, so that everyone is competent in how they work.
The vendor you work with should have a record and reputation for delivering excellent products and nothing less than outstanding customer service. The vendor you work with should also offer the products at a good price. You should not have to pay more than market price for what you buy. It is essential that you get a good deal on such systems, as you do not want to overspend on your budget.
The vendor you work with should also be willing to stand by its brand. The devices you take delivery of should be without damage or defect. You should expect and demand nothing less than perfection in what you receive.
