Dr. Rham Mahmoud

Overview

Two hot buttons for any for profit organization, first is the excessive quality cost and the other is the loss of sales revenue. So, the language of money is essential. For a successful quality effort, the single most important element is leadership by upper management. To gain that leadership, we should first convince management that a problem exists (excessive costs due to poor quality) that requires their attention and action. A robust quality cost system coupled with successful quality improvement projects is a solid way to increase organization profit. COURSE OBJECTIVES Allow businesses to trim their budgets while delivering a satisfactory product or service on time. Learn how to quantify the losses that are affecting your profit and how to reduce and control them so you can optimize your operation cost as much as possible. Learn to apply cost reduction strategies over time to reduce costs throughout an organization, especially in the areas of scrap, rework, defects/errors, field service, long lead time, unplanned stoppages and warranty cost leading to improved operational profits. Cost of poor quality costs companies millions of dollars each year, and its reduction can transform marginally successful companies into profitable ones. Increase team-based output and be prepared to lead and participate in cost reduction initiatives.
