The Quality Policy
Ironform’s execution model is based on moving our internal cycle time (CT) as close as possible to our customer’s Takt Time, TT. The parenthesis ((())) indicate our understanding that these two values will never be equal but that the effort improves us incrementally, each day. Ironform’s quality policy extends this shorthand formula to the CI cycle. Where we create standard work (SW), monitor with visual controls (VC), take countermeasures as needed (CM), apply disciplined problem-solving techniques (5W) and commit to implementing solutions in real-time (RTPR).
