Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs – October, 2016

Leave a comment

Welcome to October, 2016 edition of Carnival of Quality Management Articles and Blogs.

We have already taken up the following topics for the familiarisation of different elements of new version of ISO 9001-

For the present episode we will look at Control of Human Errors in general, and then move over to how that can possibly be addressed in the implementation ISO 9001: 2015.

Human Errors have been well addressed in the past in the literature relating to fields like safety management or health & medical services management. We have picked up a few representative articles here:

Human Error: Causes and Control – by George A. Peters, Barbara J. Peters –  Detailed, practical, and broad in scope, the book explores the field of human error, including its identification, its probable cause, and how it can be reasonably controlled or prevented.

Human factors: Managing human failures – The challenge is to develop error tolerant systems and to prevent errors from initiating; to manage human error proactively it should be addressed as part of the risk assessment process, where:

  • Significant potential human errors are identified,
  • Those factors that make errors more or less likely are identified (such as poor design, distraction, time pressure, workload, competence, morale, noise levels and communication systems) – Performance Influencing Factors (PIFs)
  • Control measures are devised and implemented, preferably by redesign of the task or equipment

Reducing Human Error on the Manufacturing Floor By Ginette M. Collazo, PhD.When we investigate quality events, the focus of those investigations rely on explaining what happened in the process and how the product was affected. A human error usually explains the reason for the occurrence of the deviation; nevertheless, the reason for that error remains unexplained and consequently the corrective and preventive actions fail to address the underlying conditions for that failure… Real CAPA effectiveness will be achieved when the number of deviations decreases. not when particular events fail to reoccur.

Minimising human errors in the workplaceEric Joost – Familiarization with the risks can make an employee feel more comfortable about cutting corners and designing their own way of working, which increases the probability of something going wrong.

As can be expected, not much literature is available yet on this subject w.r.t. its impact in ISO 9001:2015. From what could be searched within reasonable efforts, I have picked up:

Struggling Against Nature – Preventing Human Error in the new ISO 9001 2015 Standard is ppt that was presented by Matt Leiphart at 2016 ISO World Congress and takes a different path in evaluating the requirement.

ISO 9001:2015 Human FactorsShaun Sayers thinks this requirement, no matter how noble in its intent, is practically unenforceable. My guess is that this will actually be ignored….. (he also) can’t help thinking that the standard might have been better if the aim to prevent human error was also included in the Nonconformity and corrective action clause – ISO 9001:2015 Clause 10.2 – too.

Before the jury is out to come to a verdict on the subject, it would be prudent to wait for some more time and allow fairly large number of organizations to implement the new version to really start detecting some strong trends.

In the meanwhile let us also look at a few interesting video clips:

Human Factors in the Clinical Laboratory: Lessons from Aviation Safety – Patrick Mendenhall, BS

Quality Systems: Managing Human Error and CAPA Effectiveness

How Many Ways Can I Screw Up Causes of Human Error

Human Error: Human error is inevitable, but you can do a lot to prevent mistakes

Human Reliability Improvement: Reducing Documentation Errors

For the November, 2016 episode, we will take up Auditing in the new versions of these management standards.

We will now turn to our regular sections:

ASQ CEO, Bill Troy in his ASQ’s Influential Voice in October Roundtable takes up ‘How can employers leverage quality to invite innovation?’. The discussion is indeed engrossing while being as simple as it can be.

We now watch two of the latest ASQ TV  episode:

Jim L. Smith’s Jim’s Gems for the month of September, 2016:

Jim's Gems

  • Statisticians Must Transform – Like other quality professionals, statisticians must add value – In this enlightened age, statisticians and non-statisticians realize tools don’t make improvements, leaders do. To become leaders, statisticians must first understand the basic change that has taken place in the way work is done and grasp how that change demands a clear understanding of the difference between managing work and leading people.
  • Now is Your Time to Act – all sorts of new and meaningful happenings await your choice to take action in order for them to come to life.

I look forward to your active participation in enriching the blog carnival as we pursue our journey in exploring the happenings across quality management blogs…………

Substantive share of Lata Mangeshkar+ songs in the Female Female duets category for the year 1949 also can be taken as one more indicator of her emergence as THE playback singer. Of course, she does share space with all other major (so-called) competing players in this category, which seems to have weighed in her favor.

I had been able to enlist quite a representative songs from HFGK, covering a wide range of other well-known vintage female playback singers in duet with some equally known male playback singers to quite uncommon female playback singers with equally unknown male playback singers. A few songs had the music directors in the role of playback singers as well. However, in the ultimate analysis, I have been able to locate corresponding YT link for a very few of these songs, in which, at least, have one song lyricist also doubling up as playback singer too.

For the year 1949, Male female duets with both the singers being equally prominent in the year has quite a comparative share with Male Female Duets in which one singer is dominant, but other does not have that comparable numerical prominence.  In this very unique category we have listened to the duets of Shamshad Begum with other male singers.

We now move over to some other sets of such Male-Female duets…

Geeta Roy + Other Male Singers

The pairing of Geeta Roy with other male singers undergoes as many shades as the respective music director of the film.

We will now take up other Male-Female Duets Songs, for which we will group the songs around the female singer. The first stage selection of such songs from HFGK has yielded a bountiful numbers that would stand up to the numbers of duets that have been rendered by both prominent partners.

Shamshad Begum + Other Male Singers

In the first cut, selecting the songs from HFGK, I had a fairly large number of Shamshad Begum’s duets with other male singers. However, I have not been able to link up all songs with the soft YT link.

Mukesh has had quite well-known duets with almost every other female playback singer for the year 1949.

Films like Dada or Shabnam or Sunhere Din or Thes had more than two duets. I have accommodated one duet here and one more in my Top Choice songs, but still had to leave out the third one. Fortunately these ones are easily accessible on YT.
