defect root causes, then eliminating defects root causes via solid communication, team building and
training skills that were developed over a decade of turning around “under-performing” assembly lines
and associated teams that repeatedly met and/or exceeded customers deliver schedules. These Product
Team Units shattered aggressive production goals by improving quality through the use of Lean
Manufacturing techniques with Statistical Process Controls (SPC) and Continuous Measurable
Improvement (CMI) Programs.
