Maintaining Quality Standards

About this item


Set in a typical wartime factory, the film discusses the supervisor's need to keep up production quantities while meeting quality standards. Narration states "quality work, like a mirror, reflects the one who produces it." Points emphasized include: the necessity for proper instruction of workers, making sure the right tools are provided and correctly used, matching the right man to the job, workers must have "job pride," the supervisor must assure that technical specifications are being met. "Bert Bowdler, a supervisor, learns that quality as well as quantity production is necessary, and how such quality standards can be achieved and maintained" (U.S. Government Films, U.S. Office of Education, 1954, 109).
