PDCA Overview
Quality the old view
  • Products and services that are exactly to
  • In many cases even outside the specifications

The TQM view
  • Products and services that totally satisfy the
    customers needs and expectations in every
    respect on a continuous basis. In fact they do
    not just satisfy but delight the customer

Quality is customer delight
Q What delights the customer?
  • product quality
  • cost
  • delivery
  • service
  • All these constitute Q

  • T Quality of
  • all products
  • all services
  • all processes
  • Team work - all employees - working together to
    achieve Q

  • M Management
  • integrated approach
  • proper problem solving methodology
  • continuous improvement

The TQM Model
JIT just when customer wants it exposes
problems TQC problem solving methods
kills problems TEI total employee involvement
people are the key
World Class
World Class
If you dont improve you deteriorate
Through continuous improvement
Through continuous improvement
Total Quality Control

TQC - The heart of TQM
TQM vs. Problem
Water high - problems hidden
Water lowered - problems exposed
Water reduced - problems minimised
Quality target
  • Target is 100 not even 99.9
  • 2-3 rail accidents every day
  • 25 bombs off target in Kosovo

100 inspection
  • The necessity of training farm hands for the
    first class farms in the fatherly handling of
    farm livestock is foremost in the minds of farm
    owners. Since the forefathers of the farm owners
    trained the farm hands for the first class farms
    in the fatherly handling of farm livestock, the
    farm owners feel they should carry on with the
    family tradition of training farm hands of first
    class farms in the fatherly handling of farm live
    stock because they believe it is the basis of
    good fundamental farm management.

How to kill problems - PDCA
  • Problem solving
  • seven steps
  • data - in god we trust, the rest of us bring data
  • fact finding
  • 7 7 QC tools
  • Continuous improvement - PDCA
  • Maintenance of improvement - process control -
    average and variability
  • Systems and procedures - Standard Operating
  • People and systems - who is the problem?

7 QC tools
  • stratify data
  • Pareto diagram
  • cause and effect diagram
  • histogram
  • scatter diagram
  • check sheets
  • control charts

7 new quality management tools
  • Affinity diagram
  • Interrelationship digraph
  • Prioritization matrices
  • Matrix diagrams
  • Tree diagram (systematic diagram)
  • Process Decision Program Chart (PDPC)
  • Activity Network Diagram

Lean in Healthcare
Lean Thinking
A. A. MilneWinnie-the-Pooh
  • Here is Edward Bear,
  • coming downstairs now,
  • bump bump bump
  • on the back of his head,
  • behind Christopher Robin.
  • It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming
    down stairs, but sometimes he feels that there
    really is another way, if only he could stop
    bumping for a moment and think of it.

The Concept Behind Lean Thoughtware...
Significant Sustainable Competitive
Lean Behavior
Lean Thoughtware
Lean Thoughtware
  1. Value can only be defined from the end user
    customers perspective (Value)
  2. To deliver customer value, the waste must be
    removed from the customer delivery process.
    (Value Stream)
  3. Once the waste is removed, the value must be
    linked together in a continuous flow (Flow)
  4. The flow must deliver to the exact customer
    requirements (pull)
  5. Additional waste is eligible to be removed
    (continuous improvement)

A Customer Perspective is a Lean Perspective
  • To be customer organization must be
    process and lean focused
  • Our processes, more than our products or
    services tell us where and how we are best
    prepared to compete"

What is Lean?
  • Lean is a Disciplined, Process Focused
    Production System whose objective is to
    minimize the consumption of resources that add no
    value to a product or servicemeaning Lean is
    the identification and elimination of muda or

About Lean
  • The disciplined process focused production system
    known a Lean production was born out of the
    Toyota Production System
  • The Toyota production System, however is not
    just a production system. I am confident it will
    reveal its strengths as a management system
  • SourceT.Ohno, Toyota Production System (1988)

5 Critical Concepts of Lean
  • Lean Thoughtware and Application are based on 5
    Critical Concepts
  • Specify Value
  • Identify the Value Stream
  • Make the Value Flow
  • Pull to Customer Demand
  • Pursue Perfection

What is Lean in Health Care?
The endless transformation of waste into value
from the customers perspective.
Womack and Jones, Lean Thinking
Lean in Health Care?
  • Can healthcare use
  • - the Toyota Production System
  • - product development - production
  • - supplier management - customer support
  • - planning
  • - to transform waste into value?
  • Can a health system use
  • - fewer inputs (time, human effort, materials)
  • - than traditional care process
  • - to produce a wide variety of products
  • - with fewer defects more quickly with less
  • Lean is not about working harder or faster, it is
    about finding waste and transforming it into
    value our customers want.

The 5 Steps of LeanCan Work in Healthcare
  • Specify value from customers perspective
  • Identify the value stream for each product, and
    remove the waste
  • Make value flow without interruptions from
    beginning to end
  • Let the customer pull value from our process
  • Pursue perfection continuous improvement
  • Do this every day in all our activities

The clinic appointment
  • You call the clinic, go through 3 voice prompts,
    are put on hold, and leave a message
  • The clerk calls you back and sets a date in 3
  • You arrive for the visit, check in, sit in
    waiting room
  • You are called into the exam room, wait for
  • The doctor sees you, saying shes been waiting
    for you to arrive diagnoses a URI, and BP is
  • The doctor prints an antibiotic prescription,
    goes to the staffroom to get it. You are allergic
    to that drug.
  • You wait to pick up the prescriptions.
  • The doctor says she wants to see you back in a
    week, no appointment is available.
  • The MA does an EKG.

The clinic appointment
  • You call the clinic, go through 3 voice prompts,
    are put on hold, and leave a message
  • The clerk calls you back and sets a date next

    to that drug.
  • The MA does an EKG.
  • At check out you ask the cost clerk says
    theyll bill you

The 5 Principles of Lean Work
  • Specify value from customers perspective
  • A quick clinic visit
  • Identify the value stream for each product, and
    remove the waste
  • Time on hold, callbacks, walking
  • Make value flow without interruptions from
    beginning to end
  • No waiting
  • Let the customer pull value from the process
  • Pull the appointment when you want it
  • Pursue perfection continuous improvement
  • Every clerk, doctor and nurse works to redesign
    for better value to the customer

Diversity in Healthcare as a Challenge to Lean
  • Large number of product lines
  • Adult vs. Peds
  • Specialty vs. Primary Care
  • Inpatient vs. Outpatient
  • Surgical vs. Non-surgical
  • Chronic vs. Acute Care
  • Each patient is unique
  • More like a custom repair (job shop) than an auto
  • Almost infinite variability in mix of diseases
    and symptoms
  • Variable age, family, gender, race, social,
    insurances factors
  • Variable health habits, tobacco/alcohol/drugs,
  • Mental health as a primary or complicating
  • Patient preferences must be respected

Use Lean tools to transform waste into value from
the customers perspective. Is There Waste
(Muda) in Healthcare?
  • Defects in products
  • Overproduction of goods
  • Inventories of goods awaiting future processing
    or consumption
  • Unnecessary movement of workers
  • Overprocessing
  • Unnecessary transport of goods
  • Waiting(for process equipment to finish or on an
    upstream activity)
  • Design of goods and services which do not meet
    users needs

Do the Eight Forms of Waste Make Sense at
  • Overproduction/Production of Unwanted Products
  • Material Movement and Worker Motion
  • Waiting
  • Over-processing
  • Inventory
  • First Time Quality Problems Defects requiring
  • Wasted Creativity of Employees

Decon Performance Improvement Project
  • Project Start 6/22/05
  • Project End 10/30/05

Problem Statement
  • Workflow in CPD Decon does not capture priority
    sets to be cleaned.
  • Missing instruments from sets in Decon have never
    been tracked and reported back to OR Surgical
  • No consistent policy for how things should be
    done in the Decon area.

Project Goals
  • To optimize work flow in the Decon area.
  • Create a system to prioritize sets for cleaning
    as they enter the Decon area.
  • Create a system to track and report missing
    instruments from sets and reduce instrument loss.
  • Create a clear policy and procedure book for the
    Decon area to promote consistency.

Processes and Tools Used

PI-II Implementation

Management of Change
The path of the calf
  • Once upon a time there was a calf. One evening he
    walked home through a thick jungle. The distance
    to his home was only one kilometer but he walked
    three kilometers since, like all calves, he
    wandered here and there, left and right, up and
  • The next morning a shepherds dog passed that way
    and saw the calfs hoof marks, and followed the
    path of this calf through the woods. Shortly
    after, the first sheep of a flock followed the
    path and behind him all other sheep. Thus a path
    was made through the wood.
  • Men began to use that path, cursing its twists
    and turns as they did, but doing nothing about
  • The path gradually became a lane, the lane became
    a road and horses and bullock carts followed it -
    followed the steps of the wandering calf.
  • A century later the road became a street, and
    then a citys crowded thoroughfare, with
    thousands following in the footsteps of the
    wobbly calf.
  • Three centuries later the road became a street,
    and then the main street of a very large city,
    Buses, lorries, trams and cars followed the
    zigzag path of the calf.

Integrated approach to TQM is most necessary
  • Two levels of implementation
  • Everyone involved - continuous improvement -
    small improvement/GHK programme - mass movement
  • Big problems - cross functional groups
  • data based
  • seven steps
  • group leadership and facilitation
