Assesment Oppurtunity- increase effciency at ford

Extracts from this document...


If Fords is to successfully compete with the Japanese car manufacturers such as Toyota and Nissan they must improve efficiency. Efficiency means maximum output at minimum cost. Fords would benefit from lower costs of production which would help increase profits. There are many ways for ford to improve their efficiency one of the ways Fords could improve efficiency is to introduce Just In Time (JIT). This is a system will allow ford to receive their raw material just in time when they need it just. JIT can prove efficiency within ford.

A big disadvantage of TQM is that because the workers check that everything is alright this will take some time and they will lose capitals as time is money in business. To conclude, I believe that Fords should introduce TQM because they will make cars with high quality which will meet the customers' needs and it will improve their efficiency significantly as they will find more customers.
