Build in Quality (Principle)

Basic Section Information

There is a common misconception that inspections are an indicator of a good quality program. The truth is that inspections mean complacency. They require that you understand the failure modes and know what to look for.

That means you have known problems that you are accepting. A better way is to go after each item you inspect for and find a way to keep the error from happening at the source.


CI Transformation Principles are the guiding rules that apply to all companies that are trying to make changes. They are similar to natural laws. Learn more about how principles guide your Lean journey in our entry on ‘Principles and Values.’
