Building a rapid market quality enhancement system around a Quality Center that centralizes customer feedback
We have established a Quality Center to bring together the various components of our organization concerned with products quality data, allowing us to enhance our worldwide ability to both prevent quality issues and quickly detect and resolve them when they occur. The facility gathers quality-related data from dealers in Japan and overseas through service departments. Measures and policies for preventing quality issues are then developed based on the issues identified from this data and provided as feedback to R&D and production departments responsible for operations including product design, manufacture, and part supplier relations.
When a quality issue does occur, we move quickly to resolve it, for example by working closely with R&D and production departments to investigate and address the cause, dealing with affected customers, and taking action to prevent a recurrence.
