Kaizen is a critical tool for to eliminate or reduce waste from production processes.Seven quality control(7 QC)tools are one of the common methods and techniques of the kaizen. The objective of this thesis is to improve product quality and performance of production using kaizen process approach by reduce or elimination of scrap with the aid of using appropriate 7 QC tools and Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) to imprOve process efficiency.The methodology use are the kaizen flow by establish a team,identify the waste with the concept of 7 MUDA and reducing the rework waste in the X Company with the aid of 7 QC tools.The flow chart,Ishikawa diagram,Pareto diagram and histogram are used to record data,identify possible cause of problem,visualize the frequencies of the rework waste and show the causal relationship between the two and the frequency distribution of a set of measurement.The improvement action of kaizen by having SOP in order to increase workers understanding on their duty,reduce scrap,increase productivity,reduce rework problem and hence save the manufacturing cost as well as increase the overall performance of the attached company. Consequently,this thesis will guide the users in the correct and effective way to reduce the rework by utilizes the SOP, 7 QC tools and kaizen flow.
