Program Overview:

“An Analytics Based Problem Management System”

Presented by Steve Mazzuca – IBM Corporation

A Quality Management System can be defined as a set of processes that are implemented in order to meet Customer Requirements and ultimately to improve Customer Satisfaction. Quality Management has evolved over time from a simple pass or fail evaluation process to one that utilizes analytics in order to drive Continual Improvement. This module provides an overview of how this was done for an actual customer and how the tools, techniques and associated processes can be integrated in order to have a large impact in an efficient and cost effective manner.
