This course focuses on the urgency of making people, organizations, and businesses more functional and competitive in a global economic environment. The course is a study of the major elements and concepts of TQM, Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing, and The ISO/TS Registration Process. Business and individual development principles and styles of quality management, systems thinking, continuous improvement, (which include team tools, statistical techniques and statistical tools used by teams and individuals), scientific management using data, and the historic influences of leaders in quality management field are studied.
Lecture: 2 hours - Lab 4 hours Lab fee: $20.00
This course is an examination of current methods use to ensure the reliability of measurements, data, products, systems & services. Students examine methods used in TQM, Six Sigma & Lean Manufacturing including the use of simulations, and ways to improve performance from the design stage. The concepts of value engineering that identifies the function of a product or service, establishes a monetary value for that function, and provide the necessary function reliability or maintainability is studied. Reliable data collection procedures using measurements traceability to NIST standards is also presented and measurement instrument capability is demonstrated.
