A DEFINITION of productivity, are quality and productivity mutually incompatible ?

"In Economics, productivity is the relation between the product and the factors of production (amount of energy, working hours, etc.)

The notion of productivity reaches three levels:
 economic
 human
 technical


Productivity is the result of two consideration types:

 On output, relating to the question about energy (how have I worked?)
 On efficiency, relating to the question about intelligence (what have I done?) "

Are quality and productivity mutually incompatible ?

Quality is integrated in our missions, be it in engineering / development, at order placement or in production.

On a development and marketing level, our concept of being "good from the start" is an important quality to us and a part of any work we carry out.

On a starting out level, the SMED method measures start up time between the last good unit of the previous batch and the first good unit of the following batch.

On a manufacturing level, a productivity indicator, the OEE (definition available on this website) integrates the "good" units: quality becomes a day to day part of the result!

Now, should we produce BEFORE or AFTER being certified ISO (9000) or TS?
 We have clients who are in both situations, certified or non-certified.
 Our methods include and respect granted certifications and develop the points that have been left by the wayside.
 We have consultants who can lead you to ISO quality certification.
