The Quality Revolution Continues...
Business talks about quality, but how many companies truly embed quality into everything they do? Ultimately, achieving superior quality is everyone’s responsibility. Addressing quality at the “end-of-pipe” is too late.
Time and again a focus on quality has proven to result in tangible benefits: cost savings, cycle-time improvement, reduction in waste, fewer product defects, fewer product returns, greater throughput and productivity, less machine downtime, greater operational efficiency and utilization of natural resources, and so on.
Fostering a quality culture and embracing continuous improvement requires focus, commitment, and accountability from employees, vendors, and customers. Quality is as important in the actualization of a tightly toleranced component as it is in the 3D file and in the clarity of communications between the manufacturer and the customer.
A focus on quality and continuous improvement of quality is the foundation of profitable, respected, trusted, and sustainable businesses. This month’s Solutions Newsletter summarizes some of the ways in which Harbec aligns “purpose with process” to reinforce its quality culture within and among employees, vendors, and customers. Together we can all mutually benefit by continuing to advance the quality revolution.
