What is the Auto Quality Matrix?

I learned about the Auto Quality Matrix from our friends in Kaizen Institute Europe. As any lean tool, you need to understand it in the context of a system instead of just copy and paste. Here some key points if you are interested on implementing it:

What is it?
A visual display of where the defect are created and where they are detected.

Why to use it?
It is part of a quality management system to quickly identify the source and prevent defects from moving downstream.

How to use it?

Here is an example:


  1. The Lean Six Sigma program helps to provide an approach that is systematic in the reduction of waste of valuable resources.

  2. Hi Jamie can you suggest the possible usage of Auto Quality Matrix in Incoming Inspection in the warehouse.
