In addition to ISO Quality standards, Nevada Industry Excellence works with companies in implementing the following company initiatives:

Statistical Process Control

Statistical process control (SPC) involves using statistical techniques to measure and analyze the variation in processes.  The intent of SPC is to monitor product quality and maintain processes to fixed targets.  Statistical quality control refers to using statistical techniques for measuring and improving the quality of processes and includes SPC in addition to other techniques, such as sampling plans, experimental design, variation reduction, process capability analysis, and process improvement plans.
 
SPC is used to monitor the consistency of processes used to manufacture a product as designed.  It aims to get and keep processes under control.  No matter how good or bad the design, SPC can ensure that the product is being manufactured as designed and intended.  Thus, SPC will not improve a poorly designed product's reliability, but can be used to maintain the consistency of how the product is made and, therefore, of the manufactured product itself and its as-designed reliability.

Total Quality Management

Total Quality Management (TQM) is a systematic approach to quality improvement that marries product and service specifications to customer performance. TQM then aims to produce these specifications with zero defects. This creates a virtuous cycle of continuous improvement that boosts production, customer satisfaction and profits.
