I suggest you start by identifying your major scrap items/categories/costs (Pareto)
Pick out the ones that are causing you the most problems and form problem solving teams.
Use tools such as brainstorming & cause & effect analysis to follow a systematic approach.Run tests & evaluate the results before deciding upon solutions. Implement the best solutions & standardise your improvements- watch the costs go down.

Sounds very easy, in practice it's hard work but the results gained are worth it(stick at it!).

If you're not familiar with things like the 7 QC tools or the PDSA cycle, it's important to invest time in training & education before you start trying to trackle the problems.

I'm co-ordinating several scrap reduction teams at the moment, if you need any advice feel free to drop me an e-mail.

Don (or anyone else):

I am doing similar here. I am training 6 people to be the future team leaders in the company. Question: I know PDCA, 7 QC, etc., myself and am in the process of teaching them to others. Have you found any good resources that are "ready-made" training sources? I don't want to spend time inventing my own if there are good ones already available.

Thanks for you help.

I haven't come across too many "off the shelf" resources, although one reasonably good commercial resource can be found at www.tqmi.co.uk

If you browse the pdf files on this site, there's somem very good stuff there e.g. 8D-A.pdf for structured problem solving.

I'm originally from a training background and I tend to prefer to develop my own stuff.
I believe I've got some materials on the 7QC tools + PDSA etc. archived on disk - I'll have a peep through, see what I can find and get back to the forum.

The "Juran Institute" offers an excellent training course for teaching quality improvement tools and technology.

I collect the number and style of defect parts every month.analyse it with parateo chart to find the biggest problem.

at regular quality meeting every month, i will propose this chart and every one at the meeting analyse the main cause as they think about it.then a team leader which department is related is assigned to gather his team for analysis further and propose their action plan to solve the issue. I am the coordinator if they need help.when the action is finished, I will verify its effectiveness and then close it if the result really meet the goal made at the meeting.
similar as 8-d.

all the documented package are PRIORITIZED ACTION PLAN every month.
