ASQ Recognizes Companies for Creative and Innovative Solutions That Save Money, Improve Quality

MILWAUKEE. - Friday, May 23rd 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) United Arab Emirates’ Dubai Aluminium and Argentina’s Tgestiona were awarded gold-level status at ASQ’s International Team Excellence Awards for increasing quality and financial savings for their organizations.

ASQ recently announced the gold-level winners — along with silver-level and bronze-level winners — at its World Conference on Quality and Improvement in Dallas, Texas, USA. In its 29th year, 38 finalist teams from 14 countries competed for gold, silver and bronze status.

The ITEA process is the only one of its kind that recognizes organizations worldwide for successfully deploying quality team-based process improvement. The ITEA criteria provide a framework to enable teams to efficiently contribute to overall organizational improvement efforts.

Since 1985, more than 1,050 organizations of all sizes have showcased proven results with long-term implications, resulting in cost savings of millions of dollars.

Gold, silver and bronze awards are presented to teams that achieve minimum scores in each awards level. Teams are judged during Quality Impact Sessions at ASQ’s WCQI, where teams demonstrate real-life applications and success of quality processes.

Dubai Aluminium’s Stub Repair Reduction Team used quality tools and methodologies to decrease repair costs by reducing product damage, resulting in an annual savings of US$1.3 million.

Tgestiona’s Matter of Time Team, based in Buenos Aires, used Six Sigma to address the process for handling customer access to the company’s systems. The results included reducing the error rate from 10 percent to 0.05 percent, and reducing processing time from 26 days to less than three.

Other teams recognized included:

Silver-Level:

    Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Team Blitz, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Bronze-level:

    Genpact, Transforming Order to Cash Process, Johannesburg, South Africa
    Max Life Insurance Co. Ltd., Proactive Retention Team, Gurgaon, Haryana, India
    Shanghai Johnson Controls Yanfeng Seating Mechanisms Co., Ltd., JCYM Continuous Improvement Team, Shanghai, China
    Volkswagen Argentina — Córdoba Plant, Contact Zone, Córdoba, Argentina
