Total Recall (2010)
2010 Logo BEST Inc. has decided to produce and market unique products for two emerging industries. To compete in the world market, our production facilities must incorporate the most advanced robotic control systems available today. BEST Inc. has decided to build four initial factories and contract with suppliers to develop the robotic control systems. Suppliers are asked to propose and demonstrate strategic processes that will result in a production facility yielding the highest quality products given the constraints of the factory. BEST Inc. is looking for suppliers with good track records in quality improvement methodologies such as Total Quality Management, Kaizen, Zero Defects, Six Sigma, and Poka Yoke with an ability to incorporate these approaches into their overall production strategy.
