The paper "The Tyre Changing Process in the 1950s and in 2013" is a great example of management coursework.   Quality management is a process by which the organization uses to be in apposition of producing consistent and high-quality services for its clients. Through quality management, the organization is able to eliminate waste and create more profits in the process of improving the quality of their service. The report is going to focus on the tyre changing process between three different years, the 1950s, 2013 and the latest. Through statistical process control, the company is able to use statistical methods to ensure that they operate in full potential.

At this level of potential, the company will be able to minimize time wastage in tyre changing. Statistical process control can be used in any process where the service being analyzed meet the required specification. Research Question The research will constitute a process analysis of three different years which tyre changing process in car racing was involved. The scope of the processes examines tyre changing process from the start of the car entering the tyre changing trench.

The process map will reflect the steps taken from the time the car enters the trench until the time when it exits after the tyres are changed. After the mapping, the variation can be analyzed within the iteration and further between the processes until the objective of tyre changing is reached. The steps of tyre changing are car stops, car jerking, tyre bolt opening, tube removal, tyre replacement, refuelling, inflation, release from jerking and exit. This is processes that are mapped within the time limits that the process take. Timekeeping records indicated in the tables below.

This is used to determine the best practices and then improve the existing practice. Quality Measurement Quality in the analysis which is measured on the baseline of the required time from the car entering the tyre replacement trench to the time of exit with the order quantity. Tyre changing project is focused on the process of changing tyres in automobile especially in car racing in a more efficient way without wasting any resource during the process. The process map explains how the customer is served from the moment he/she request the services from the company.

There significant tools that are used to achieve statistical process control, one of them being the control charts; this is focused on the consistency in the improvement of quality of service. A design experiment is also another key tool in statistical process control where it is applied in various production lines. There are major challenges facing this process especially in maintaining the quality of services offered and determining the variation of quality outside the standards. The following is a sample that indicates the time taken between the car racers entering the area for tyre change up to the time the race car leaves. The Tyre Changing Process in the 1950s General Description The tyre changing process involves only four people hence are slowing the operation and hence the longer time is taken.

They were only allowed to change the front tires at one instance then the others at another instance.
