Abstract

The rate at which industrial processes are improved is limited by the present shortage of technical personnel. Dr Box describes a method of process improvement which supplements the more orthodox studies and is run in the normal course of production by plant personnel themselves. The basic philosophy is introduced that industrial processes should be run so as to generate not only product, but also information on how the product can be improved.
