Four Rules Activity

To bring happiness to our customers, to carry out our social responsibilities, and to achieve growth, each member of the Aerospace Company remains aware of our work rules (procedures, basics). When we find that the rules are difficult to follow, unclear, or out of step with the times, we all work together to improve them, rather than leaving the burden to one person. Through this activity, we strive to increase the quality of our work.

The four rules

In the work you are doing today
  1. Are there any rules (procedures, basics)?
  2. Are you following the rules?
  3. Is there any room for improvement?
  4. Are you discussing with someone about workplace improvements?

Quality Month Events

The Aerospace Company holds periodic quality meetings. They hold discussions regarding customer satisfaction and product quality from various aspects. In addition, every November is designated as Quality Month. There are awards for employees who have contributed to improving quality, and distribution of pamphlets to educate all employees on quality.
We have also established many kinds of systems such as the Improvement Proposal System, which aims to allow employees to display their creative abilities and build a culture of making improvements.
