Implementation of Total Quality Management

A Comprehensive Training Program

Here is a comprehensive guide for training a workforce in Total Quality Management (TQM). An ideal resource for trainers, Total Quality Management Implementation contains a complete presentation of all relevant aspects of TQM. It provides a ready-made training format that can be used in all operational seminar/workshop contexts and includes a full set of charts for use by trainers in their presentations of TQM. The book assumes the trainer has a basic understanding of quality management, and it does not repeat the numerous discussions of TQM concepts readily available in other works. Total Quality Management Implementation begins with an overview of the current status of TQM in the United States. It then presents W. Edward Deming’s 14 point TQM philosophy, the core of his recommendations for achieving quality excellence through continuous improvement, along with a discussion of each point. The presentation charts have been designed to allow the trainer to adapt them to a particular organization’s unique characteristics and to supplement or add to them as necessary to fully explain each point to a particular audience. The charts are arranged in sequential order and follow the approach used by the author in training seminars around the world. Trainers can easily manipulate the length of the presentation for different audiences and purposes. A reference section lists many books on TQM principles which provide a helpful refresher. Total Quality Management Implementation is a unique and helpful guide for trainers with a basic knowledge of TQM, college or university faculty teaching TQM seminars or courses, and consultants and quality professionals who could use a reference and checklist of TQM principles.

Philosophy and Technology II

Information Technology and Computers in Theory and Practice

Until recently, the philosophy and history of science proceeded in a separate way from the philosophy and history of technology, and indeed with respect to both science and technology, philosophical and historical inquiries were also following their separate ways. Now we see in the past quarter-century how the philosophy of science has been profoundly in fluenced by historical studies of the sciences, and no longer concerned so single-mindedly with the analysis of theory and explanation, with the re lation between hypotheses and experimental observation. Now also we see the traditional historical studies of technology supplemented by phi losophical questions, and no longer so plainly focussed upon contexts of application, on invention and practical engineering, and on the mutually stimulating relations between technology and society. Further, alas, the neat division of intellectual labor, those clearly drawn distinctions be tween science and technology, between the theoretical and the applied, between discovery and justification, between internalist and externalist approaches . . . all, all have become muddled! Partly, this is due to internal revolutions within the philosophy and his tory of science (the first result being recognition of their mutual rele vance). Partly, however, this state of 'muddle' is due to external factors: science, at the least in the last half-century, has become so intimately connected with technology, and technological developments have cre ated so many new fields of scientific (and philosophical) inquiry that any critical reflection on scientific and technological endeavors must hence forth take their interaction into account.
