A business aquantance just asked me this question and I can’t find it anywhere. I am familiar with the term and I believe it is either part of the Toyota Production System or a part of design for assembly or design for manufacturing.
What is the origin and definition of Built in Quality and where can I find it?
thanks for your help0June 8, 2007 at 4:00 pm #157181
The origin of Built in Quality, I don’t believe came from any one source although several can be attributed to its Conception: Thomas J Watson (IBM), Patrick E Haggerty (Texas Instruments), Robert Noyce (Intel), Jack Welch (GE), Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Alfred P. Sloan; All visionaries for built in quality. As far as a definition it is really dependant upon the Mission Statement of the organization. Even the Romans had somewhat of a built in quality system, so how far back to you want to go. Even Noah had to have Built in Quality or the damn boat would have sank.
Interesting Read: ” Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionaries” I forget the author, but should be easy enough to search on Amazon.
Cheers all it freakin Friday
