Quality Management systems, are they really necessary?

The importance of Quality can never be under estimated. Quality is the most important competitive priority for every Organization, achieving better quality than competitors, is imperative to stay in the race to become the Best-In-Class today. Cost and Quality were considered to be at two different ends of the same continuum i.e. to improve quality meant increasing cost, but over time this view has changed drastically. Improved Quality, achieved through continuous improvement of process has been able to reduce the total Cost function in the long run.
Doing things right the first time, managing operations by facts and applying statistical process controls has led to better Quality for Organizations and have reduced costs such as rework, rejection, reverse logistics, labor costs, materials cost and many other costs that contribute to the overall cost function. Practices like Kaizen, Poka Yoke, TQM, Lean Management, JIT management etc. have contributed towards the Quality revolution and have become a part of day-to-day operations for firms world-wide. But there is much more to Quality Management than just theories that emphasize on Quality improvement. Quality management should be viewed as the number 1 priority and a proper quality management system should be put in place to achieve the desired quality conformance.
Information Technology plays a vital role in monitoring and maintaining Quality, doing things right the first time is possible only when the facility has the capability of analyzing quality in real time as the process is performed. Using IT to implement a Quality management system is a novel idea, because of the inherent features of IT applications. An IT application not only automates a factory, it also integrates all the processes that would otherwise remain separated. IT applications allow Quality to become a part of the entire production process and helps develop the ‘Quality Culture’ within the Organization. There is an evident need for achieving a high Quality standard and also there is a need for comprehensive IT systems that can help monitor and improve the overall quality of products and process.
