Course Code: QMS Course Title: QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM Course Prerequisite: Mgt 301 Operations Management Course Description: marketing, administration, and development of Course Rationale: This course is for students seeking a comprehensive introduction to TQM. The course is multi disciplinary and includes elements relating to design of services (products) and processes, organizational behavior, operations management, problem solving methods, organizational statistical applications for service organizations and manufacturing. Topics include evolution of theory; TQM models, tools, and techniques; TQM teams; production of graphs and charts; strategies for meeting customer expectations; benchmarking; and comparison of TQM applications. In the mid-1980s and early 1990s, many businesses and organizations were squeezed by global competition and increasing customer expectations where customers demanded quality in both products and services and would not hesitate to take their business to those firms that were mindful of these expectations. Founded on the three principles of customer focus, process focus, and people focus, this approach took account of the entire organization integrated around a strategic quality plan-a proactive plan for meeting and exceeding customer expectations. In the last 15 years, quality management has become integrated into the practices of manifold firms. Given the pervasiveness of TQM implementation, firms no longer make a big show of implementing quality programs; they just do it! TQM itself has evolved and broadened to include such keywords as the learning organization and knowledge management. In short, to meet the demands of today's customers, it is crucial that every firm adopt an integrative view of its processes as captured by the framework of TQM.
