Schaumburg, Illinois (PRWEB) July 7, 2006
Accelper Consulting, formerly Quality Technology Company, announces the development of its 4P model of Process Management. The 4P model allows corporations to move from standards of acceptability to excellence in order to compete globally. Most U.S. corporations have utilized a model called PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, and Act) for last 50 years, which was developed to ensure customers get the ordered quantity in time. International standards such as ISO 9000 also incorporate PDCA for creating process thinking. According to Praveen Gupta, developer of the 4P model, “PDCA has a built-in ‘Check’ that adds to the cost of quality. This sounds counter to quality thinking, and must be changed.
The 4P model consists of Prepare, Perform, Perfect, and Progress phases. This allows its users to aim for target performance rather than simply the ‘acceptable’ performance.
Some of the benefits observed by applying the 4P model include much higher performance at a lower cost, change in focus from operator problems to engineering problems, and raising expectation from simply ‘acceptable’ to ‘striving for excellence.’
One of the changes needed to implement the 4P model is that organizations must specify targets, not just the acceptable limits such as lower and upper specification limits. Building to target is a much better value proposition than building to limits, which really represents ‘limited’ capability.
Several companies have benefited using the 4P model. To receive more information about the 4P model, one can contact Arvin Sri at (847) 884-1900, or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can directly visit us at http://www.accelper.com/articles.asp.
