Quality videos worth watching… Our favorites this week

We’ve selected a few of our favorite quality related videos and wanted to share.

The Ingredients of Quality Management – You’ll be hungry after this one, but it’s a great introduction.

Modern Chairs’ – A Total Quality Management Training Video – “Made in the style of Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times, the intention is to teach teamwork, production line processes, process optimisation, defects, quality, and continual improvement Kaizen.” At 10.5 minutes, it’s lengthy but worth the watch for entertainment value alone. Anyone in the quality industry can appreciate this one.

Tips on quality from Bentley

We recently discovered a video discussing quality control at a Bentley Mulsanne factory.  As a 3rd party quality assurance and engineering firm, we do a significant amount of work in the automotive industry.  From TS 16949 audits to product inspections, it’s an industry we know places value on quality.

Of course, Bentley is synonymous with quality, representing to many the highest of automotive luxury. For Bentley, “the attention to detail is what defines a valued, quality product.”

“Spec check”

When the cars in this video come off the line, they make sure everything matches the specification.  Non-conformances are flagged and logged.  This can take up to an hour and half.  During another process check, anything flagged is taken care of.

From a previous post:

Inspection Plan Development
A good plan is only as good as its foundation, so a comprehensive and detailed product specification is critical to the success of the overall strategy.  Pro QC often assists clients with this documentation creation and also uses it internally to direct engineers on-site.  A good plan incorporates anything that will affect the salability and performance of the product.

An introduction to ISO 9001:2008

This video series is an excellent introduction to ISO 9001:2008 produced by QualityGurus.  The two-part series answers many of the questions we receive from clients.

ISO 9001:2008 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement). It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. In fact ISO 9001:2008 is implemented by over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries.
