A: Since July 2014, Southwest Aluminum has made continuous improvement of product quality an important means to enhance its core competitiveness, and has carried out special activities for quality improvement. Statistics show that from July to November, the comprehensive product yield of Southwest Aluminum products increased by 2.03 percentage points over the first half of the year, and the gross profit contribution value was more than 20 million yuan.
Open the Southwest Aluminum LAN, the person in charge gave the author a quality report in July. A full five-page notification content details the cause of the accident, the accident, the accident investigation, the corrective measures, the accident liability, and the liability handling of the accident. He introduced that the quality accident notification on the local area network is to further educate the employees, strengthen their sense of responsibility and improve their quality awareness. At the same time, Southwest Aluminum boldly “moves the knife” to the weak link of the quality of the grassroots and basic management, integrates the daily management norms of the workshop into the quality management requirements, and introduces the quality management into the “five minutes before the class”.
Jin Chenglong, director of the Molding Manufacturing Department of the Forging Factory, said that the special campaign for quality improvement has come to an end, but since the launch of the special event, the “Five minutes before the class” has been solidified into his working mode every day. “Five minutes before the class” is now integrated into the content of quality management. During the meeting, he will sort out the quality problems that may occur in the production of the day. Due to the reminder beforehand, the staff has done a good job in controlling the quality of the products. The weak link in the quality problem is equivalent to forward-looking prevention, and the effect is immediate. Grasping quality like safety and integrating quality management into grassroots production is an effective attempt by Southwest Aluminum to grasp the quality of “double base” management. It is understood that since the launch of the activity, Southwest Aluminum has promoted the quality improvement with the point and face, starting from several products that users urgently need, taking measures such as process optimization and technical research, and successfully improved the yield of key products such as a certain type of aviation skin board by 10%. The percentage of the skinned board of a certain type of rocket has increased by 6 percentage points year-on-year. The product quality has improved, the user is satisfied, and the benefits have followed, realizing a win-win situation for both the enterprise and the user.
