Summary

To. capture the true nature of making products, and in the belief that the best personnel developing is practical research to raise the technological level, we have been engaged in SQC promotion activities under the banner “SQC Renaissance”. The aim of SQC promoted by Toyota is to take up the challenge of solving vital technological. assignments, and to conduct superior QCDS research by employing SQC in a scientific, recursive manner. To this end, we must build Toyota’s technical methods for conducting scientific SQC as a key technology in all stages of the management process, from product planning and development through to manufacturing and sales. Especially, multivariate analysis resolves complex entanglements of cause and effect relationships for both quantitative and qualitative data. A part of application examples are reported below, focusing on the cluster analysis as a representative example.
