assurance takes on a special meaning with the involvement of the
workforce at all levels. Employees are encouraged to think of themselves
as quality inspectors and have the authority to stop the production
process if a problem is detected . The KAIZEN (continuous search
for better way) philosophy encourages them to contribute to the
planning process, specifically in organized Quality Assurance Circles
, comprising management and workers. Each worker is responsible
for the quality of product at his stage and has the authority to
withhold it from the next process if unsure of its quality .
Quality Assurance System is designed to eliminate problems and defects
at source, to minimize finished product rejections.
finished seats are rigorously checked on the final assembly jig
before they are stored for delivery.
