Quality 'fanatics' use SQCpack to save Ben & Jerry's
When Quality Assurance folks are “absolute fanatics,”
like those at Ben & Jerry’s in Vermont, the outcome
is predictable: high quality products, cost savings, and a reputation
for consistent excellence. With a QA system built on an integrated
data approach and utilizing SQCpack in its panoply of
quality tools, these “fanatics” have identified savings
of more than $100,000 in the past year while continuing to build
the company’s reputation for great ice cream products, according
to Ben & Jerry’s. Go to benandjerrys.htm
