2 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-2 Quality According to PMBOK, project quality is defined as “the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfill requirements.”

3 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-3 Importance of Quality Determined by industry or tolerance for error Critical: health or safety related

4 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-4 Quality Within Project Management Required in all stages –Initiation and closure Goals and level of achievement (lessons learned) –Planning Determine ways to control quality –Execution and control Feedback mechanisms to monitor and adjust

5 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-5 Quality Can Be Applied To: –The project team Sets performance expectations –Processes Identifies ways to control quality –Success level Allows team to determine the level of quality attainment

6 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-6 Pioneers in Quality Management Deming – –Deming offered fourteen key principles for management for transforming business effectiveness. In summary: 1.) Create constancy of purpose toward improvement of a product and service with a plan to become competitive and stay in business. Decide to whom top management is responsible. 2.) Adopt the new philosophy. We are in a new economic age. We can no longer live with commonly accepted levels of delays, mistakes, defective materials, and defective workmanship. 3.) Cease dependence on mass inspection. Require, instead, statistical evidence that quality is built in. (prevent defects instead of detect defects.) 4.) End of the practice of awarding business on the basis of price tag. Instead, depend on meaningful measures of quality along with price. Eliminate suppliers that cannot qualify with statistical evidence of quality.

7 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-7 Pioneers in Quality Management 5.) Find Problems. It is a management’s job to work continually on the system (design, incoming materials, composition of material, maintenance, improvement of machine, training, supervision, retraining) 6.) Institute modern methods of training on the job 7.) The responsibility of the foreman must be to change from sheer numbers to quality… [which] will automatically improve productivity. Management must prepare to take immediate action on reports from the foremen concerning barriers such as inherent defects, machines not maintained, poor tools, and fuzzy operational definitions. 8.) Drive out fear, so that everyone may work effectively for the company. 9.) Break down barriers between departments. People in research, design, sales and production must work as a team to foresee problems of production that may be encountered with various materials and specifications. 10.) Eliminate numerical goals, posters, slogans for the workforce, asking for new levels of productivity without providing methods. 11.) Eliminate work standards that prescribe numerical quotas. 12.) Remove barriers that stand between the hourly worker and his right of pride of workmanship. 13.) Institute a vigorous program of education and retraining. 14.) Create a structure in top management that will push every day on the above 13pts.

8 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-8 Pioneers in Quality Management Juran –Pareto Principle (80/20 rule) – “ 80% of a problem is caused by 20% of the causes). This is also known as the "vital few and the trivial many". In later years Juran has preferred "the vital few and the useful many" to signal that the remaining 80% of the causes should not be totally ignored.”

11 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-11 Quality Standards ISO9000 –Quality management focus Customer quality requirements Regulatory requirements Enhance customer satisfaction Continual improvement – Six Sigma –To achieve Six Sigma, a process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities –Champion, Master Black Belt, Black Belt, Green Belt proficiency designations

12 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-12 Certificates/Awards Total Quality Management (TQM) –A description of the culture, attitude, and organization of a company that strives to provide customers with products and services that satisfy their needs –Emphasizes processes being done right the first time and defects and waste eradicated from operations

13 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-13 IS/IT Quality Where do you focus? How do you measure? What is the return on investment?

14 © 2008 Prentice Hall8-14 Quality Planning Quality planning –The process of identifying relevant quality standards and developing a plan to ensure the project meets those standards
