...Years Later Deming's 14 Points Still Relevant and Needed QAS 511 Professor William Trappen 03/27/2012 30 Years Later Deming's 14 Points Still Relevant and Needed W. Edward Deming is one of the founding fathers of quality philosophy. Along with Juran, Cosby, Feigenbaum, Ishikawa, and Taguchi Deming help shaped the way businesses look at and think about quality. While Deming did not use the term Total Quality Management (TQM) in his book he is generally credited with founding the TQM movement and most of the modern TQM principles are contained in Out of the Crisis (Cohen, para. 3). Thirty years after being originally published in Out of the Crisis Deming's 14-points are still guiding and driving quality efforts in America. Deming first laid out his 14 points in Out of the Crisis (p. 23-24). Since then they have become a standard for quality professionals. Point number one, “Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of product and service, with the aim to become competitive, stay in business and to provide jobs”, (Deming 1982 pg 23). This point can be seen in many companies today. With the rise of ISO-9000 many companies have adopted a focus on quality and improvement. Almost every ISO compliant business has a quality policy and those mostly focus on improvement of quality and/or service. Virtually all companies strive to be more competitive and wish to stay in business. The piece of this point that many companies......

Deming's 4 Paradigms and 14 Points

... Deming’s 14 points and Deming’s Paradigms Name Institution Affiliation Deming’s 14 points and Deming’s Paradigms The first point talks about one having a purpose towards improving their products and services ,aiming to stay in business and become competitive. In management, leaders should have missions to improve their services and be competitive. The second point says that leaders must have and adapt to the new philosophy. In managing effectively, leaders must learn their responsibilities to help in better management. In the third point, Deming asks the leaders to stop depending on inspection. This would help in quality management since it would give the employees freedom and less inspection, thus quality products. In point four, Deming states that one should trust a single supplier for a long-term relationship for trust and loyalty. This would help in minimizing the total cost, and hence more profit. In point five, the manager should improve the production system. In management, this will help in improving productivity and quality. This would reduce the costs in the company.

Deming and His Theory

...Deming and His Theory The concept of quality has never been the same since William Edwards Deming appeared. This remarkable man is known as the most influent guru of quality management. Deming was born in October 14, 1900 at Sioux City, Iowa, The United States. He was an electrical engineer, an excellent statistician, professor, author, lecturer, and management consultant. (Wikipedia. n.d) One day he said: “It is not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and then do your best.” (izquotes. n.d.) The previously mentioned quote introduced one of the most important views from Deming: Why do people lose a lot of time doing wrong work? If they lose time, they will lose money. The cost of quality depends on doing correct work at the first time. Now, I will present the three important parts of Deming’s life that caught my attention: his philosophy, the 14 Points, and the System of Profound Knowledge. Deming’s philosophy is based in the importance of statistical quality control and it consists in continuous improvements in product development and manufacturing processes. (Evans & Lindsay, 2008) Utilizing these thoughts, products and services will reduce the variation in design, manufacturing, and services. Consequently, the costs will decrease because of less rework and waste, fewer mistakes and delays, increased capacity, and improved utilization of resources. (Wikipedia. n.d.) Also, it is important to see the production as a whole system, where everyone works together......

...Dr. W. Edwards Deming, who believed that improved quality increases productivity and worker morale, revolutionized excellence in the Japanese production process and, thereby, guaranteed Japan a world-class reputation. He gave credence to the philosophy of TQM (Total Quality Management), meaning that defects could be reduced and quality be attained by “getting it right the first time” (Rowen). Deming began his career as a statistician and was recruited during World War II to assist with quality control for U.S. war materials. After the war, he was rejected by corporate America, so he accepted Japan’s invitation to help them change their reputation from one of cheap products to producing innovative quality products (Cohen x). Deming advised the Japanese to maintain high quality control principles, rather than copy from the American system. He believed that American industries had become lazy, and that they had incorrectly surmised that customers wanted cheap prices, rather than quality goods. According to Deming, the Americans failed to realize that by presenting an improved product, customers could attain cheap prices and a durable good at the same time. Currently, the Japanese are focused on and are known for producing excellent products. The car industry is one example. Toyota, Nissan, and other Japanese car companies are producing high quality cars at relatively cheaper prices than the U.S. brand cars. Many times, if a Japanese car is more expensive than a U.S. model,......

The Deming Prize

...The Deming Prize Keller Graduate School of Management GM588 Managing Quality; Spring 2010; Session B May 2010 Purpose and Background Following World War II Japan had a lot of catching up to do with the rest of the world. Their manufacturing had been largely based on copying other’s technology and the war had cut them off from outside sources for several years. In 1946 the Union of Japanese Scientists and Engineers (JUSE) was founded thus starting the quality movement in Japan. They invited Dr. W. Edwards Deming to come and give a series of lectures on Statistical Process Control in 1950. His teachings made a profound impact on Japanese industry and his philosophies continue to have an impact today. A transcript was made of his eight day lecture series, “Dr. Deming’s Lecture on Statistical Control of Quality,” and was subsequently distributed by JUSE for a charge. Dr. Deming then donated his royalties back to JUSE. In appreciation of this the Deming Prize was founded to commemorate Dr. Deming. Categories of the Deming Prize There are three categories of the Deming Prize; The Deming Prize for Individuals, The Deming Application Prize, and The Deming Distinguished Service Award for Dissemination and Promotion. The Deming Prize for Individuals The Deming Prize for Individuals is given to individuals or groups “who have made outstanding contributions to the study of Total Quality Management (TQM) or statistical methods used for TQM, or those who have made......

Interpretation of Wilson's 14 Point

...President Woodrow Wilson’s 14 points I. Open covenants of peace, openly arrived at, after which there shall be no private international understandings of any kind but diplomacy shall proceed always frankly and in the public view. The purpose of this point is to forbid arrangements, segments of settlements or indulgences that are formed in secret with making it available to the members of the public. The expression "openly arrived at” was used by the president to disclose to the Senate that the expression was not intended to reject private strategic arrangements including fragile matters, but to address that anything that occurs through any classified arrangements or consultations might not tie, unless it shows up in the Final agreement that is made known to the world. The point also proves that in future; each bargain most be a law that covers the general public and the world as a whole by making each country accepts a sure commitment with respect to its requirement. Clearly, countries can't expect commitments in matters they are not aware of; and subsequently any mystery settlement has a tendency to undermine the whole structure of universal agreements that will be proposed in future. II. Absolute freedom of navigation upon the seas, outside territorial waters, alike in peace and in war, except as the seas may be closed in whole or in part by international action for the enforcement of international covenants. The purpose of this point is to explain that during......

14 Points

...Deming's 14 points W Edwards Deming was an American statistician who was credited with the rise of Japan as a manufacturing nation, and with the invention of Total Quality Management (TQM). Deming went to Japan just after the War to help set up a census of the Japanese population. While he was there, he taught 'statistical process control' to Japanese engineers - a set of techniques which allowed them to manufacture high-quality goods without expensive machinery. In 1960 he was awarded a medal by the Japanese Emperor for his services to that country's industry. Deming returned to the US and spent some years in obscurity before the publication of his book "Out of the crisis" in 1982. In this book, Deming set out 14 points which, if applied to US manufacturing industry, would he believed, save the US from industrial doom at the hands of the Japanese. Although Deming does not use the term Total Quality Management in his book, it is credited with launching the movement. Most of the central ideas of TQM are contained in "Out of the crisis". Dr.Deming's famous 14 Points, originally presented in Out of the Crisis, serve as management guidelines. The points cultivate a fertile soil in which a more efficient workplace, higher profits, and increased productivity may grow. 1. Create and communicate to all employees a statement of the aims and purposes of the company. 2. Adapt to the new philosophy of the day; industries and economics are always changing. 3. Build......

...W. Edwards Deming Quality Culture Mini-Paper IE 361 Dr. Stephen B. Vardeman Maggie Brown Matt Freyer Rod Parayno What follows is a brief look into the story behind and work of William Edwards Deming. Included are a brief summary of his life, his philosophies, and the impact of his efforts. The Life of William Edwards Deming Deming was born on October 14, 1900 in Sioux Falls, Iowa, but spent the majority of his youth in Powell, Wyoming. He was raised on a government granted section of farmland with one brother and two sisters ( The Deming family struggled just to survive. Deming’s parents believed in the importance of an education and stressed this to their children. His mother had studied music and his father, mathematics and law. His mother’s love of music influenced Deming’s interest in music and composition later in life. In 1917, Deming began his own education at University of Wyoming at Laramie. Four years later, he graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. Deming continued with his education, completing his master's degree in mathematics and physics from the University of Colorado, and his PhD in mathematical physics from Yale University ( After receiving his PhD, Deming was offered a position with the Western Electric Company, but decided to pursue work at the Fixed Nitrogen Research Laboratory of the U.S. Department of Agriculture instead. It was there that Deming encountered statistics and......

Demings 14 Points

...Dr. Edward Deming is "the father of Statistical Quality Control, no other individual has had more influence on quality management than him. During WWII Deming taught quality control courses as part of the U.S. national defense, however he realized that teaching only engineers and factory workers would never solve the fundamental quality problems. Japan invited him to teach his theories where Deming preached the importance of top management leadership, customer/supplier partnerships, and continuous improvement in product development and manufacturing. Japan became the world leader in the automobile manufacturing industry shortly thereafter. Subsequently American car manufacturers experienced a decrease in sales. Deming was unknown in the U.S. until 1980, when NBC telecasted a program entitled "If Japan Can... Why Can't We?" The documentary highlighted Deming's contributions in Japan and his work with Nashua Corporation. Don Peterson former CEO of Ford had the opportunity to work with Dr. Deming. Peterson applied Deming’s theory at Ford. In doing so Ford's market share increased in the 1980's and overtook GM in 1988. Peterson was voted America's most effective leader. Peterson credited his success to Ford's quality transformation, prompted by Dr. Deming. Deming’s 14 points can be applied to our daily work to be more successful not only as a company but as individual's as well by getting training to improve our work, working in teams to be more efficient and......

The Deming Cycle

...The Deming Cycle By Paul Arveson W. Edwards Deming in the 1950's proposed that business processes should be analyzed and measured to identify sources of variations that cause products to deviate from customer requirements. He recommended that business processes be placed in a continuous feedback loop so that managers can identify and change the parts of the process that need improvements. As a teacher, Deming created a (rather oversimplified) diagram to illustrate this continuous process, commonly known as the PDCA cycle for Plan, Do, Check, Act*: * PLAN: Design or revise business process components to improve results * DO: Implement the plan and measure its performance * CHECK: Assess the measurements and report the results to decision makers * ACT: Decide on changes needed to improve the process Deming's PDCA cycle can be illustrated as follows: Deming's focus was on industrial production processes, and the level of improvements he sought were on the level of production. In the modern post-industrial company, these kinds of improvements are still needed but the real performance drivers often occur on the level of business strategy. Strategic deployment is another process, but it has relatively longer-term variations because large companies cannot change as rapidly as small business units. Still, strategic initiatives can and should be placed in a feedback loop, complete with measurements and planning linked in a PDCA cycle. To illustrate the......

The Deming Approach

...The Deming Approach W. Edward Deming's philosophy is one that focuses on continuous improvement at all levels of an organization for all products and services. The philosophy is articulated in Deming's 14 Points and Seven Deadly Diseases. Deming's philosophy and TQM go hand in hand. You would be hard-pressed to find a TQM implementation that did not have Deming's philosophy as part of its foundation. Deming noted the villain was variation, and variation exists in everything. Our challenge is to identify and reduce variation in order to improve the quality of the items produced or services provided. For years, many struggled with Deming's points. Some complained that many of the points were not realistic, asking, for example, how can you run a business without using numbers? Doing so was just not possible, they said. In his 1993 book, The New Economics for Industry, Government & Education, Deming provided insight into his thinking. In the text is a chapter titled Theory of Profound Knowledge. Here, Deming outlined the basic thinking for creating change. There were some who intuitively understood his theory years before it was published. Those were the people and groups that had been successful in implementing TQM. The changes required to implement Deming's philosophy are not easy and will take time, but the rewards are worth the changes. We only need to look a Toyota to see just what can be accomplished! For many, if not most, U.S. businesses, Deming's ideas are......

...Deming vs. Crosby The act of overseeing all activities and tasks needed to maintain a desired level of excellence is the meaning of quality but no one person has pioneered the meaning of quality more than Philip Crosby and Edward Deming. Organizations of all types, sizes, and demography put a huge amount of time, effort, and money into quality in order to improve their competitive advantage. They also know that nothing can improve their overall productivity while reducing their operating cost if they don’t have a solid quality management process in place. Philip Crosby and Edward Deming are two experts who transcended the word “Quality” and brought it not only to US based companies but, also other companies that operate in the global marketplace. In summarizing and comparing Deming and Crosby’s contrasting strategies for quality management you will find that although being from two different genres, their intrinsic meaning and approach to quality management was quite similar. DEMING The fundamental point in Deming’s theory is basically “The Customer is King” and is the most important part of the production system and value chain. Deming’s approach was simple and didn’t require a lot of thought. The customer should be the most essential point of focus for any business, besides if there was no customer, there would be really no reason for the business to produce a product or service. This type of focus would spawn a very important question to an organization......
