Quality Control In Defect Management for the Property industry
Based on an article written by Adam Hayes, the process where a product or service is being done effectively or is being maintained in terms of its effectiveness is known as Quality Control (QC). It is definitely not a one-man job especially towards the property industry to ensure a healthy environment that strives for perfection to be built within the organization. It requires the cooperation of both the employees and also the whole management to ensure defect management can be made possible.
Defect Management Automation
The crucial part of quality control is the implementation of well-organized controls which would come in handy in terms of the standardization process of the reactions and productions of certain issues related to qualities that would make defect management more systematic. Not just that, it will help a lot in reducing any errors possibilities in all of the production work done by each individual in the property industry as chances are high that those individuals are only familiar with their work scope only and are not well trained in all other work aspects, so by having a well-mannered quality control, less error will occur, better defect management can be implemented. In other words, having a well-organized defect management system, that helps to reduce the number of errors or defects in the most cost-effective way possible in producing a product or service. However, there are still property developers that consider the defect management process as not crucial and are just a waste of time. Or maybe they just have no clue on what are the steps that should be implemented in order to implement the defect management process. Here are some steps that may come in handy for more effective defect management.
100% Inspection Method To Enhance Quality Control
The 100% Inspection method is quality control in a defect management process to go through each component of a certain product or service in detail to ensure even the smallest errors are being identified and eliminated. The bad side of doing such quality control in defect management methods is that it could lead to a high amount of expenses for the property industry to do the in-depth analysis process and time will be wasted. This can be related to defect management by analyzing the cause of defects and grouping them accordingly based on their urgency and seriousness. After that, the property developer team will find the best solution to resolve the grouped issues to avoid them from affecting the well being of the project.
According to Adam Hayes in his article on Quality Control, the bar Chart method works best in defect management, when products or services are being randomly tested according to their attributes. This method is often where the X-Axis indicates the samples being tested while the Y-Axis tracks the degree of acceptance for each attribute being tested. The pattern of the chart will then be analyzed to identify whether the defects in the process are occurring in a systematic or random order. This quality control method will help a lot when we are trying to analyze the defects during the defect management process that may occur in the project we are doing so that we can identify the best solution to take in preparation of eliminating the defects during the defect management process by the Property industry.
The Taguchi method is more towards doing in depth development and research, product development and designing products in order to decrease the possibilities of any impairments or issues to occur within the property industry. The Taguchi Method believes in the importance of the manufacturing process in keeping the quality control of a service or product in good shape in order to identify and eliminate as many defects as possible during the defect management process before it makes the whole end product or service fail. As mentioned, this method will also apply defect management in their quality control process by keeping track the quality of the product or services being produced by the property developer ensuring all defects are being identified, grouped, and then eliminated
Above all the quality control and defect management, the last step to secure all of the process is when all the data from all the error’s resolutions are being stored for future references in order to avoid any repetition of the same error to occur. It is also known as a lesson learned for the property developer to make it easier for all to make it as a reference starting from where was the root cause of the error, the level of seriousness of each error, the best method to solve those errors, and also the corrective action taken.
To wrap things up, quality control and defect management should go side-by-side when it is being implemented to ensure the best outcome for the property industry in ensuring a better workflow process to reduce errors. Both aspects must be effectively managed as both need each other to create something greater.
