The implementation of the QCDSM system has seen Jucy By Design transform its business. We have seen a marked increase in productivity and decrease in defects which has ultimately resulted in a better product for a cheaper price. The buy in from our staff has been key and the daily Green Room meetings have given them the opportunity to make suggestions and also deal with any issues there and then rather than days or weeks down the track. The transformation has been great to see…Dan Alpe, Jucy by Design
The benefits of the training, embraced company-wide by everyone from me to the newest apprentice have been widespread. Not only has it helped us weather the current financial crisis and improved our Gross Profit, it has also bought our staff closer together, enhanced teamwork and helped us improve all of our internal processes…Grant Senior, Formula Cruisers
When I first joined Alsco Christchurch I saw congestion and flow was difficult and slow. CM has given the team many of the insights and tools to use to make flow easier, so I am not the only one with the knowledge. Now all team members have a good feeling of what can be achieved if the process flows. It is great to see how many team members have taken improvement seriously and have made work easier and safer…Aaron McConnochie, Alsco NZ

Oscar Mayer (Kraft Foods, USA)
“BRC institute for export to UK gave us an A after we explained the QCDSM process developed by Peter Paola and Willem Botha of QCD Systems. The Green Room meetings and the Detailed Process Sheets convinced the auditors that our processes were under control.”
Kraft Foods, Mexico City
“We implemented the program in the three Mexico City plants and at our plant in Monterrey Mexico. Less than six months later, I received a call from our Chief Food Safety Officer, who wanted to know: “what the Hell did you do in Mexico?” I asked if I was in trouble. Her response was that upper management had not seen such a plant turn around in so short a time in all of their careers.”
Formula Cruisers, NZ
“Peter and Willem were able to explain the systems behind the process. On our last build we were able to save on labour costs 28% ($300,000)”
