Walking Towards Better Quality
In an effort to further strengthen the quality of products manufactured at RAM SMAG Engineering (Changshu) Co., Ltd (RSC), the Company introduced the “Leadership Quality Walk” programme.
This programme engages all mid-level managers and supervisors to gather at the shop foor for a walk around the facility. The walk-around initiative will allow the respective managers and supervisors to gain a better understanding of interrelated processes and operations in other departments.
Notably, apart from inspecting the quality of work produced at each station, managers’ attention will also be drawn to details, including 5S, cleanliness, organisation and handling of work pieces.
In-depth and lively discussions are encouraged to recommend ways to help enhance the current work quality and productivity.
“The objective of ‘Leadership Quality Walk’ is to raise awareness of managers and supervisors concerning quality, as well as to instil in them the importance of taking ownership in quality. To achieve quality products, we need to start from the beginning, and to pay attention to every detail during each process and operation.” – Htay Aung, Chief Operating Officer – RSC
