by Ron Kurtus (revised 4 January 1997)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What was the old way of getting quality goods from your suppliers?

Just accepting poor quality and doing re-work

Buying the same item from several vendors

Bribes and payoffs

2. What incentives encourage supplier quality?

Do not pay for goods until 60 days past the due date

Form a partnership that could guarantee further business

Parties for upper management

3. Why should you help the supplier provide you with quality goods?

It is in your best interest to make sure your product is delivered per spec

It is the nice thing to do

There is no good reason, and that is why few do it

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Total Quality. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
