Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] A structured approach, namely the Deming plan-do-check-act cycle, to managing improvement projects is proposed for adding discipline to and maintaining focus on contamination control and reduction efforts. This managerial framework is used to help guide an emission reduction project at a wallboard manufacturer. Process improvement results are documented along with lessons learned.
