Title

An analysis of the relationship between work measurement and Total Quality Management (TQM)

Abstract

"Total Quality Management (TQM) emphasizes continuous improvements. Yet, Deming in his 14 Points (an early framework for TQM) explicitly discourages time standards. However, time standards have historically been used to measure work and evaluate productivity improvements. The objective of the study is to determine how industry addresses these conflicting views."--Abstract, page iii.
