Proactive Quality helps to avoid including known or knowable causes in a new product or process design.
What methods do you use to prevent causes from being included in a product or process design?
Do you consider preventive design controls such as Material Guidelines, Design Guidelines, ANSI standards, Engineering Requirements Planning and Control, the System V-Diagram, Design Verification, Design Validation, Design Reviews, Best Practices, and so on as proactive quality, design standardization, design process control, or something else? Why?
Do you consider Robust Design Tools (e.g. boundary diagram, interface matrix, P-Diagram, and the Robust Check List), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, HazOp, HARA, Safety Analysis, simulation, finite element analysis, and so on as proactive quality or something else? Why
