SMART QMS – Continuous Improvement (CI) Module

Continuous Improvement System for six sigma, lean manufacturing, Quality Control Circle (QCC), etc.

Introduction :

Continuous improvement is an ongoing effort to
improve products, services or processes. These efforts can seek
“incremental” improvement over time or “breakthrough” improvement all
at once.  The common continuous
improvement methodologies are six sigma, lean six sigma, lean manufacturing,
Quality Control Circle (QCC), and Small Group Activity (SGA).


Continuous improvement
initiatives is a must for an organization to ensure their products or services
can constantly meet customer increasing demand. 
However, regardless of improvement methodologies as mentioned above, a
lot of resources and manpower is needed to ensure the projects are well managed
and achieve the required results. 

Very often, the project champion, six sigma master black belt or team
leader is busy with handling various paper works or report submitted by each
team.  Furthermore, they need to track
the progress for each team to ensure the required deadline is met.  Normally, this is carried out through Excel
spread sheet which is manually updated and monitored.

sigma implementations experience, the lean six sigma consultant from Blue Ocean
Data Solutions has developed SMART QMS – CI module to automate the entire
process right from improvement theme selection, online approval of project,
