S.QE – FOR A WORLD FREE OF CRASH, BOOM, BANG

Reality check: These days, quality management is increasingly becoming an out-of-touch, ritualized dance of documentation. Many companies worldwide cultivate a naive faith in ISO standards. Instead of increasing value creation and enhancing productivity, this misguided belief gives rise to vast amounts of data and shifting piles of paper, never lastingly improving production quality. Should anything go wrong during production, this tangled web of data and processes makes looking for the cause feel like the search for the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Enter S.QE’s revolutionary and holistic methods. We find errors. Always and everywhere. We provide precise information about the causes and – crucially – how to eradicate them. To this end, S.QE offers an

innovative, value-enhancing approach to quality management: our Integrated Quality Excellence Model. Even our offer to you is revolutionary: Tell us your biggest quality problem and we will find the causes. We guarantee it. If we don’t, we won’t bill you. This attitude is second nature to us and to every one of our colleagues who have all committed to this 100% promise.

S.QE will shrink the time needed for inspections, minimize recalls and help you drastically reduce rejections and rework. This is our core business and S.QE is always a step ahead of the crowd – or maybe even two. Get to know S.QE today and bring lasting change to your quality instead of just documenting it!

INTEGRATED QUALITY EXCELLENCE – WHAT’S THAT?

If you create something completely new and unheard of, you have to give a name. We may not be world champions in naming but that does not change the fact that Integrated Quality Excellence is an entirely new approach to quality management: S.QE has taken a quantum leap in quality management instead of categorically holding on to specific schools of thought or QM tools.

 

If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

 Paul Wazlawik

S.QE wields the methods of the many QA schools of thought and their various tools in their entirety. Why work on every problem with a never-changing set of techniques and tools? We use our S.QE big data tool to multiply conventional methods and tailor them to the situation, bringing above-average speed to our search for errors. That’s more easily said than done, you say? We agree. That is why you should meet with us. Let us present one of our successful case studies that illustrates our Integrated Quality Excellence approach. Or read about them here.

By the way: S.QE and the Integrated Quality Excellence Model also work as an early warning system – long before you notice a hitch in development or production. Prevention is key for increased profitability. In the long run, it always costs less than fixing mistakes.

OUR FOUR – PRONGED APPROACH
TO WEAKNESSES IN THE SYSTEM

The Integrated Quality Excellence Model targets four critical areas at your company. A holistic QM system that doubles as an unbeatable error-eradication emergency task force:

 

 

Q-Strategy

  • Developing suitable quality systems to provide lasting business strategy support
  • Establishing and developing a problem-solving culture
  • Making quality controllable instead of just assessing it

Q-Prevention

  • Dealing with internal and external product and process risks
  • Providing anticipatory risk assessment
  • Reducing product and process development times

Q-Control

  • Managing risks
  • Measuring and interpreting live production data
  • Acting on the basis of hands-on predictive models, without being limited to specific methods

Q-Fire

  • Quickly and effectively reacting to urgent quality problems
  • Detecting deficits in development, production or logistics
  • Identifying the real causes and necessary solutions

WE HAVE A
ZERO-TOLERANCE APPROACH – TO YOUR PRODUC-
TION LINE AS WELL.

OUR S.QE CHALLENGE:
TELL US YOUR BIGGEST QUALITY PROBLEM!

Quality can be the topic of many a philosophical treatise – but not when it comes to S.QE. We will not tell you what you want to hear but what the facts, figures and data say. Nothing but the truth! It might sound harsh at times but will ensure your success in the long run. And ours, too. We are not promising you pie in the sky. What we are promising is that you will not pay a single cent if we cannot find the error behind your quality problem. That is our 100% pledge and the only thing you should measure us by.

We only get paid if we find the error. Don’t believe it? Try us!

WHO IS BEHIND S.QE AND WHERE DO WE COME FROM?

We are quality engineers. Experts in the fields of quality management, software development, R&D and problem solving. Together, we were looking for a holistic and, most importantly, hands-on solution for present-day quality management. We found a lot of cookie-cutter mentality as well as dogmatic theoretical approaches like Six Sigma – none of which were satisfactory models. So we sat down to develop our own holistic, integrated quality system that permits problem solving beyond the limited scope of individual methods. Integrated Quality Excellence was born.

Working together with lean experts at Staufen AG, one of Germany’s leading consulting firms for process quality, we created STAUFEN.Quality Engineers. S.QE for short.

And because sharp minds are our most important asset, we are always looking for interesting people who can laterally think their way out of several boxes. Is being called anally retentive a badge of honor in your eyes? Get in touch with us! We look forward to getting to know you.

YOUR QUALITY MANAGER HAS A PHD.? OURS HAVE X-RAY VISION.
