Singapore’s Housing and Development Board used quality tools to develop a new product, the Gradient Measuring Tool, to measure the gradient of ramps in its housing communities. The Gradient Measuring Tool reduced the amount of time it took to assess a ramp’s gradient by 89.5 percent. The team that developed the Gradient Measuring Tool has won five awards for its work and qualified as a finalist in the 2008 ASQ International Team Excellence Award Process.
