Who are we? - We don't believe traditional Quality systems or auditing methods go far enough to ensure products can be designed and manufactured at the lowest cost and highest reliability. If they did, why are there still so many damaging product recalls? Click for examples. Clearly Design, Manufacturing and Quality processes have improved substantially over the last 50 years. So why are recalls still an issue? The answer is Culture. We have developed a university and peered reviewed method of analysing Organisational Culture in conjunction with industry leading, Design, Manufacturing and Quality auditing methods to uncover future failures, that would typically go undiscovered... until too late.
Mission Statements – To revolutionise the way company's products are developed so that technology can take its next big leap in reliability.
Executive Profile – Founder and Managing Director, Dr Adam Palm. Practical, real world, grounded, academic, business minded Engineer, Manager and Director. Within his own 35 years experience in High Tech Engineering, Auditing, Quality, Sales, Business Management and Directorship and that of the Engineering world we live in, (See examples), Dr Adam Palm, could see the common thread behind product failures and expensive manufacturing processes. Whether hard recalls (after product released to market) or soft recalls (high rework, missed launches etc...) the origin of the failure is often not in Design, Manufacturing or Quality processes, which is where auditors typically look. Product failures are often created by the culture of the organisation that developed the product. He demonstrated this point at the Doctoral thesis level. The result is a framework that we call the Recall - Foresight tool. This tool can be used to test (or audit) companies Design, Manufacturing, Quality AND Culture to see if the cancer of product failures (hard or soft) are within the DNA of an organisation.. Like all cancer's, just because the potential is within ones DNA, does not mean you can feel it's affects today... but in time you probably will. Wouldn't you want detection as early as possible? Or is it easier to live in denial... for now?
