In recent times, the role of service has become a critical differentiator between companies that are merely ordinary and those that are truly exceptional. Companies can create and maintain a competitive advantage and can keep loyal customers returning for life by consistently delivering a level of service that delights customers. To do this, exceptional quality needs to be designed into the service when it is first created, and maintained through the life of the service. This book, intended for managers in both manufacturing and service industries, shows you how to design customer delighting service by applying well known Total Quality Development (TQD) and Total Quality Management (TQM) principles. The book is a detailed, step-by-step guide that describes the state-of-the-art tools and methods such as Quality Function Deployment, Functional Analysis, Experimental Design and Simulation that you need to create, implement, manage and improve the processes by which service is provided.
