VRI - Variation Reduction Initiative successful implementation at Multek.
The PCB group of Flextronics International Ltd.
|Our Quality Philosophy||Integrating Mergers & Acquisitions|
In a continuing effort to foster the integration of all (M&A) sites worldwide, and to promote the "one-look-one-feel " work environment, MPW focus his attention on:
Designing a Global Corrective Action system
Merging it with a methodology for Rapid Problem-Solving
Global Quality Philosophy
Establishing a Quality Council
Global Quality System for PCB
Standardization of Forms and Structure of Engineering Reports
Under the umbrella of the VRI, all site protocols were integrated
|To unify all sites and to further promote "one-look-one-feel", Corporate quality goals and objectives were established and published in a full color, detailed brochure for internal distribution and for customer awareness.|
|A Training Curriculum for all Employees of the Organization|
Every director, manager, and engineer received the same level of advanced training regardless of their involvement with the VRI plan.   Why?     The reason is simple.
There is no reliable, long-term benefit for the organization which has only one, or a few, well-trained, prepared and skillful individuals who are subject matter experts (SMEs) on critical business processes. Inevitably, when such SMEs communicate, the non-experts do not understand what the SMEs are talking about. The non-experts cannot even ask questions, factually challenge action-decisions, or propose informed, viable alternatives. And just as inevitably, this schism between the knowledge "haves" and the "have-nots" yields frustration, conflict and the likely failure of the organizations change and improvement initiatives.
|Global Corrective Action/RPM Enterprise System||CA/RPM|
|At Multek, the globalization of the CA/RPM system significantly improved response levels and interaction with customers, and raised the scientific professionalism of the organization when dealing with problem-solving.|
|The Global Corrective Action System (CA/RPM) was merged with a methodology for rapid problem identification, analysis, response and resolution, and developed into an Internet/Intranet software enterprise solution.|
|Rapid Problem-Solving Methodology||BGA Via Plug Example|
|The Rapid Problem-Solving Methodology (RPM), a proprietary methodology of ASC, teaches all the steps necessary to correct problems. It was designed to speed up the execution of problem solving, specifically when responding to a customer complaint or to a stoppage on a production line.|

|Inter-Factory Product Transfer|
|A typical problem experienced by many global organizations is the transfer of product to a low-cost facility. To make the transfer seamless an Inter-Factory Product Transfer Protocol was initiated and further developed into a full global intranet software program, an important element of the Corporate Quality System.|
