In large companies, the quality system used at any manufacturing site should have a definite mechanism for assuring that the site complies with corporate quality policies. The FDA will hold headquarters management responsible and accountable for site failures. Corporate management reviews should include assessments of site quality functions. The most effective quality assurance and regulation assurance groups have a major role in establishing, maintaining, and continuously improving metrics and for monitoring and reporting quality data.

Quality has no specific meaning unless related to a specific function or measurable characteristic. ” “Do the right things” means that we have to design the best product or service for customers’ needs at a cost that represents value to them. “Do things right all the time” means that products and services are performing consistently and customers are satisfied at all times. If we miss any of that, quality will be missed as well. Quality has evolved over time from the early 1920s, when Shewhart introduced the first control chart, through the transformation of Japan from the 1950s to the late 1980s, when six sigma came on the scene.

The cost of poor quality is a metric that all good companies should utilize. Companies could not measure effectiveness and efficiency without it. It must include both the price of conformance and the price of nonconformance. It can be just as important to lower the price of conformance as to lower the price of nonconformance. The price of nonconformance was one of the four absolutes that Phil Crosby promoted in his fundamental overview of quality, which is still relevant today. When nothing bad is happening, how do responsible functions convince management that it is because of the good quality system that is in Hace?
