How Do You Improve and Control Quality?

Quality improvement and control is a systematic, formal approach to the analysis of performance and efforts to improve and control performance. A variety of approaches—or QI models—can be employed to develop and analyze the effectiveness of quality improvement efforts.

Quality improvement and control initiatives can help you,

  • Identify potential causes of variation.
  • Identify which potential factors are most impacting quality.
  • Optimize inputs to achieve the performance and results you want.

My methods are designed to bring about measurable improvements.

Plan, Do, Study, and Act!

Standardized methods for quality improvement have been around for decades. The Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) and Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) processes provide the underlying framework. Experimental design methods show us how to collect data to answer questions.
