Deming G? Edwards Deming is the internationally renowned consultant whose work led Japanese industry into new principles of management an revolutionized their quality and productivity. The adoption of Dr. Deming's 14 point for management could help industry in the United States. Deming has enjoyed a worldwide practice for 40 years. Preface The aim of this book is transformation of the style of American management. The basic cause of sickness in American industry and resulting unemployment is failure of top management to manage.

Chain reaction: Quality, Productivity, Lower Costs, Capture the Market The author wants to illustrate a stable system of trouble in a manufacturing plant, and to explain that because the system is stable, improvement of quality is the responsibility of the management. One of the key questions is "Why is it that productivity increases as quality improves?

Improvement of quality transfers waste of manhours and of machine-time into the manufacture of good product and better service.

The result is a chain reaction - lower costs, better competitive position, happier people on the job, jobs, and more jobs. The Japanese have adopted this view and they go right ahead and improve the process without regard to figures, it has turned out that there is nothing to loose in good quality. The chain reaction is illustrated below. Improve quality Costs decrease because of less rework, fewer mistakes, fewer delays, snags; better user of machine-time and materials Stay in business Productivity improves Capture the market with better quality and lower price Provide jobs and more jobs Japan has also showed that abundance of natural resources is not a requirement for prosperity.

The wealth of a nation depends on its people, management, and government, more than on its natural resources. The problem is where to find good management. Since an improductive system is stable any substantial improvement must come from action on the system, and the responsibility lies on management. In one of the numerous examples of productivity increase, the gains were listed for one particular case: Page. This is an example of gain in productivity accomplished by a change in the system, namely, improvement in definitions, effected by the management, to help people to work smarter, not harder.

The author refers to A. Feigenbaum who estimated that per cent of the manufacturer's costs of almost any American product is for waste embedded in it - waste of human effort, waste of machine-time, nonproductive use of accompanying burden. Principles for Transformation of Western Management The purpose of this chapter and of the next one is to explain the elements of the transformation that must take place.

There must be an awakening to the crisis, followed by action, management's job. This transformation of management is not done by everyone doing his best, there is a need for a methodology, a theory. The author offers a method, a plan, for this transformation that can be condensed into 14 points, see below. The author focuses on management and its incompetence to manage.

The author refers to questions and statements of Dr Lloyd S. The central problem of management, in all its aspects, is to understand better the meaning of variation, and to extract the information contained in variation. If you can improve productivity, or sales, or quality, or anything else, by, say, 5 per cent next year without a rational plan for improvement, then why were you not doing it last year?

The most important figures needed for management of any organization are unknown and unknowable. In the state of statistical control, action initiated on appearance of a defect will be ineffective and will cause more trouble.

What is needed is improvement of the process, by reduction of variation, or by change of level, or both. The author's claims the 14 points to be applicable to all kinds of organizations, small, big, service industry as well as manufacturing or even a division within a company. They constitute a basis for transformation of American industry. Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of product and service, with the aim to become competitive and to stay in business, and to provide jobs.

Adopt the new philosophy. We are in a new economic age. Western management must awaken to the challenge, must learn their responsibilities, and take on leadership for change. Cease dependence on inspection to achieve quality. Eliminate the need for inspection on a mass basis by building quality into the product in the first place.

End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag. Instead, minimize total cost. Move toward a single supplier for any one item, on a long-term relationship of loyalty and trust. Improve constantly and forever the system of production and service, to improve quality and productivity, and this constantly decrease costs. Institute training on the job. Institute leadership.

The aim of supervision should be to help people and machines and gadgets to do a better job. Supervision of management is in need of overhaul, as well as supervision of production workers. Drive out fear, so that everyone many work effectively for the company. Break down barriers between departments. People in research, design, sales, and production must work as a team, to foresee problems of production and in use that may be encountered with the product or service.

Eliminate slogans, exhortations, ant targets for the work force asking for zero defects and new levels of productivity. Such exhortations only create adversal relationships, as the bulk of the causes of low quality and low productivity belong to the system and thus lie beyond the power of the work force. Substitute leadership. Eliminate management by numbers, numerical goals.

The responsibility of supervisors must be changed from sheer numbers to quality. This means abolishment of the annual or merit ration and of management by objective. Institute a vigorous program of education and self-improvement. Put everybody in the company to work to accomplish the transformation. The transformation is everybody's job. These 14 points are elaborated below.

Create consistency of purpose for improvement of product and service. Establishment of constancy of purpose means acceptance of obligations like: a. Allocate resources for long-term planning. Plans for the future call for consideration of; new technologies, training, cost and customer. Put resources into research and education c. Constantly improve design of product and service. The consumer is the most important part of the production line. We are in a new economic age, created by Japan.

American industry cannot be protected by government regulations, but instead, American management has to change. Cease dependence on mass inspection. When product leaves the door of the supplier, it is too late to do anything about its quality.

Quality comes not from inspections, but from improvement of Page. Inspection, scrap, downgrading, and rework are not corrective actions on the process. End the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag alone.

Price has no meaning without a measure of the quality being purchased. Without adequate measures of quality, business drifts to the lowest bidder, low quality and high cost being the inevitable result.

The purchasing department must change its focus from lowest initial cost of material purchased to lowest total cost. A long-term relationship between purchaser and supplier is necessary for best economy. How can a supplier be innovative and develop economy in his production processes when he can only look forward to short-term business with a purchaser? In the long run, one comes out ahead by working with the single supplier, provided that he upholds his responsibility for continual improvement.

The same reasoning goes for a vendor with multiple shipping points - a supplier with two shipping points may serve a customer with two plants by specifying one shipping point for one plant, the other shipping point for the other, no substitution or mixing.

Two shipping points from the same vendor is just as bad as two suppliers. What is needed is a state of mutual confidence between purchaser and vendor, a dialogue: "This is what I can do for you. Here is what you might do for me". Improve constantly and forever the system of production and service. Quality must be built in at the design stage. Teamwork in design is fundamental.
