Question Looking for some Quality Catch Phrases - First Piece and Last Piece Displays

I am working on a project that will be adapted throughout our location whereby the first piece inspected is displayed and used as a visual aid and become the last piece packed out. No big deal there but I also need a catchy phrase that I can use for the title of the display. I was thinking something like "The Pulse of Quality" but it just isn't right. Does anyone have any sayings that would take the idea of first piece inspection and make it more like a quality initiative?

Thanks!

How about using Deming's third point:
Quote:
Cease dependence on inspection to achieve quality. Eliminate the need for inspection on a mass basis by building quality into the product in the first place.

Re: Looking for some quality catch phrases..

Yes Jim, we are supposed to eliminate DEPENDENCE on inspection, not dependence on INSPECTION. I think what Kimberly is looking for here is more a "catchy name" than a "catchy phrase", or, as in another Deming point, a slogan.

Maybe "First Piece = Middle Pieces = Last Piece".

Just MHO.

We supply to BMW and I am not sure if a Ford slogan would work but I am pondering the thought....

Thanks!

Re: Looking for some quality catch phrases..

Yes, a slogan that emcompasses quality is what I am looking for. I want to get across the idea that quality starts here. Hmmmmm. That may be a good one. "Quality Starts Here". Maybe....
