Question and answer
What is the most important foundational element in the quality process? Why is it the foundation of success in this process?
Organizational structure Responsibilities Data Management The concept of quality as we think of it now first emerged out of the Industrial Revolution. [ Previously goods had been made from start to finish by the same person or team of people, with handcrafting and tweaking the product to meet 'quality criteria'. Mass production brought huge teams of people together to work on specific stages of
production where one person would not necessarily complete a product from start to finish. In the late 19th century pioneers such as Frederick Winslow Taylor and Henry Ford recognized the limitations of the methods being used in mass production at the time and the subsequent varying quality of output. ]

In a global market, source venders – or stakeholders – may or may not have quality control enforcement that meets the standards of the country producing the product. What are some approaches to control quality across the global supply chain? What are some implications or consequences of not properly controlling the quality of raw materials and components in the supply chain? Provide examples to support your answer.
Weegy: In the first part of this article, we discussed why supplier quality has been a prime topic at recent industry conferences, in the media, and in legislation. [ Supply chain has evolved into a complex process of global sourcing, manufacturing, and distribution. With increasing levels of media exposure for recalls, companies have to be responsive to the growing pressures from regulatory agencies and customers to develop, implement, and maintain a supplier management program that integrates compliance, oversight, and strong supplier relationships into business practices and quality systems. In this article, we’ll look at the key areas that companies should focus on for an overall improvement in quality in the supply chain. A supplier management program can help improve profitability by decreasing the cost of quality. Additional emphasis should be placed on the control/oversight of suppliers as outsourcing activities increase. Remember, poor cost of quality results in rework, waste, delays in product approval, resource inefficiencies, corrections and removals, enforcement actions, and other problems that impact profitability.

Such processes will secure access to more/better sources of supply and reduce the cost of procurement. * Monitoring/maintenance that will include the initial review, ongoing reviews, and annual evaluations (audits, internal and external nonconformance data, on-time delivery data, and so on) and keeping ...
