  • Where do we stand in cost of quality awareness? - Pakistan's
           case
    • Authors: Sheheryar Mohsin Qureshi, Sadia Majeed, Rameez Khalid
      Pages: 273 - 289
      Abstract: Quality management (QM) techniques have emerged as effective tools for organisations to satisfy their customers and achieve competitiveness. Cost of quality (COQ) is regarded as an important QM technique which measures the cost incurred in achieving better and improved product or service quality. This paper intends to contribute in the area of empirical study on quality costing by providing analysis of understanding and performance of the Pakistani industry (manufacturing and service sectors) in the context of practicing the basic principles of quality, QM and especially the effective implementation of COQ programme awareness. Findings of the study manifest that majority of the respondent firms have well implemented QM practices. Evidence also suggests that implementation of COQ programme helps enhance overall competitive position of the firm. However, due to lack of necessary understanding and relevant training on COQ, majority of the firms do not formally report COQ.

  • Economic-statistical design of EWMA-3 control chart for monitoring
           simple linear profiles
    • Authors: Amirhossein Amiri, Mahboubeh Mohebbi
      Pages: 290 - 314
      Abstract: In this paper, the EWMA-3 control chart for monitoring simple linear profile is economic-statistically designed. Average run length criterion of the EWMA-3 control chart is computed by using a Markov chain approach. In the proposed model, the Lorenzen and Vance cost function is applied and the parameters of non-conforming production cost are computed based on the Taguchi cost function. The proposed model is solved by a genetic algorithm. Finally, a sensitivity analysis is done on the parameters of the proposed model.

  • Outcomes from an exploratory study of quality methods utilisation in
           Brazilian companies
    • Authors: Gabriela Winck Jacques, Jose Arturo Garza-Reyes, Ming K. Lim, Vikas Kumar
      Pages: 315 - 333
      Abstract: This paper presents an initial study that investigates the degree of adoption of quality methods in Brazil. The research is based on an exploratory survey validated and distributed among a number of Brazilian organisations operating in a wide range of industries. The results were analysed using descriptive statistics. The study shows that many Brazilian companies are now adopting quality methods as a strategy to be globally competitive, with ISO standards being their first choice. The study also presents evidence of which methods have been more widely implemented, their importance, the results obtained, and the barriers faced during their implementation. Reasons for not using them were also investigated. The paper also identifies some key factors to successfully deploy quality improvement approaches in Brazil. This study offers academics, researchers and practitioners interested in the area of quality with some initial evidence of the adoption and development of quality methods in a fast developing country like Brazil.

  • Implementation of reliability-centred FMEA in a cable cutting process
    • Authors: Hatice Cömert Deveci, Hatice Esen, Tuğçen HatipoÄŸlu, Nilgün Fığlalı
      Pages: 334 - 351
      Abstract: Reliability is an important criterion affecting the automobile buying decision of customers. One of the most important components in automobiles is the cables ensuring the electricity current. Even the smallest breakdowns in these cables create crucial problems. Because of that, it is aimed to work with zero error in the production phase. In this study, the objective is the determination of possible and present errors in the cutting phase of electric cables and avoidance from these errors before they occur. In this regard, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) methodology is used, which is an analysis done for prevention and identification of all possible error types. Preventions found by FMEA have been implemented and high risk priority numbers (RPNs) are reduced in a cable cutting process. The study shows that significant improvement in possible errors can be ensured with the use of FMEA.

  • Change point estimation of gamma regression profiles with a linear trend
           disturbance
    • Authors: Fatemeh Sogandi, Amirhossein Amiri
      Pages: 352 - 368
      Abstract: Estimating the real time of shifts in process would ease the identification of special causes and leads to saving in time and cost, so it is very important for process improvement. On the other hand, in many applications of statistical process control, quality of a process or product is summarised by a functional relationship referred to as profile. Although there are many real cases with gamma responses in profiles, little studies have been devoted to the estimation of the change point of this type of profiles. The main contribution of the paper is deriving a maximum likelihood estimator for change point estimation in gamma regression profiles with a linear trend disturbance. Also, a T2 control chart is used to detect the out-of-control signal in monitoring gamma regression profiles. The performance of the proposed estimator is evaluated through simulation studies. The results show the accurate and precise estimates of the change point by the proposed estimator. Afterwards, a confidence set estimator for the process change point based on the logarithm of the likelihood function is presented. Finally, the performance of the estimator is illustrated through a numerical example.
      Keywords: change point estimation; maximum likelihood estimation; MLE; gamma regression profiles; phase 2; linear trend disturbance; statistical process control; SPC; control charts; simulation

  • Quality Insights: The DEJI Model for quality Design, Evaluation,
           Justification, and Integration
    • Authors: Fatemeh Sogandi, Amirhossein Amiri
      Pages: 369 - 378
      Abstract: Quality is at the intersection of efficiency, effectiveness, and productivity. Efficiency provides the framework for quality in terms of resources and inputs required to achieve the desired level of quality. Effectiveness comes into play with respect to the application of product quality to meet specific needs and requirements of an organisation. Productivity is an essential factor in the pursuit of quality as it relates to the throughput of a production system. To achieve the desired levels of quality, efficiency, effectiveness, and productivity, a new research framework must be adopted. In this column, we present a potential quality enhancement model for quality design, evaluation, justification, and integration (DEJI) based on the product development application presented by Badiru (2012). The model is relevant for research efforts in quality engineering and technology applications.
      Keywords: DEJI model; quality design; quality evaluation; quality justification; quality integration; product development; product quality; quality improvement
