Most modern quality programs still rely heavily on inspection systems, and therefore can be quickly and cost-effectively improved in the ways directed in this book. For example, the inspection system could utilize embedded sensors, relaying critical information back through the inspection process. This information can be filtered, integrated, and transformed into actions that can improve the quality of both product and process in a targeted fashion. Such a supercharged inspection system can be made a strong partner of your Six Sigma and lean manufacturing systems.
The concepts presented will be an advantage for any company, small or large, that wants to play in the high-quality ballpark but cannot afford the heavy, upfront expenditures that are often necessary in traditional approaches.
