Applying the Quality Mindset

There are three “phases” of thinking and action within Total Quality Culture. The “phases” are not necessarily serial or exclusive – we must be capable of thinking and acting in each of the phases at the appropriate times.

NXPReact and RespondDetect and CorrectPredict and Prevent

React and Respond

Responding quickly to identify and address quality issues after we build the product or deliver the service.

Detect and Correct

Detecting the quality issue before it reaches the customer and correcting the true root cause.

Predict and Prevent

Early identification and addressing of risks and issues to prevent future issues from happening.

Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement is part of what we do every day at NXP. Our manufacturing and business operations work diligently to identify risks, reduce variation and defects, implement effective tests and screens, and eliminate root causes to ensure that we meet or exceed your expectations. Continuous improvement is everyone’s responsibility. We use a variety of processes, methods and tools to drive continuous improvement activities within NXP, including:

  • 5S
  • Business process re-engineering
  • Lean production
  • Six Sigma
  • Root cause problem solving
  • Kaizen
  • Internal audit
  • And many more
