Dr.Kaoru Ishikawa and TQM(Total Quality Management)

The father who pioneered TQM and developed its superiority all over the world.

Almost a quarter of century ago, while the TQC was at the peak of glory on the other the “ISO” was not even literally recognized in business community Dr.Ishikawa emphasized the importance of synergy effect of ISO and TQM in his lecture of the graduate school.

In the 1980s, Japanese products entered into the worldwide market with their excellent quality. The management system that supported the world-leading manufacturing technology of Japanese companies was TQC of that time. Quality improvement utilizing the Japanese small-group activities such as “QC circle” based on advanced mathematical statistics combined the peculiar technique to the field and the academic control technique and then demonstrated the superiority of the Japanese management system. The late Dr. Kaoru Ishikawa, the founder of TQC, is a master of the total quality control which made a deep impact on companies from various industries. He is the former professor of Tokyo University and the principal of Tokyo City University (Musashi Institute of Technology at that time) and was awarded the ‘Deming Prize’ in Japan and the ‘Grant Prize’ and ‘Shewhart Medal’ by the American Society for Quality Control in the 1980s for his achievements and contributions to the development of quality control. His achievements are still highly evaluated and appreciated by the world leading companies that he helped to practice TQC, including Ford Motor Company and IBM.

Now, a quarter-century after this, one of his followers has established this Sevenstars. with a mission of TQC so as to promote excellent Japanese management techniques, TQM, to not only Japanese but overseas companies. Being filled with awe for Dr.Ishikawa and the eminent successors for TQM all over the QC fields Sevenstars. shall work his great will and make advances as one last but not least follower everlastingly.

ISO and TQC could be developed by synchronizing with each other reciprocally. One side wheel will need the other side.
