As I mentioned in previous blog, we are now doing the fourth topic as our group project. It made me to draw an analogy with our previous CBE project (Comparison of EFQM and ISO:9000).
It seems to me that these two projects are quiet similar to each other. I mean, in case with our CBE project we were basically comparing the excellence framework with the standards, - the same is happening here, when we contrast DFSS (can be defined as methodology with different tools and techniques) and R&M Case (is about contractors who use the standard that allows them to provide evidence that they fits into R&M requirements).
Drawing on that parallel we can assume that DFSS and R&M Case can be different and similar in the same way as EFQM and ISO were. That means that we can assume the following things:
- In the same way as it happened with EFQM and ISO, the DFSS and R&M Case have different nature of motives. DFSS follows intrinsic motive while R&M Case put more emphasis on extrinsic motives such as winning a tender and getting the contract.
- The nature of DFSS and R&M Case is also differ as the former provides lots of tools that help to fit into customers’ requirements, whereas R&M Case is very descriptive and specify only what should be done (!!! But doesn’t suggest how to achieve this).
I know that EFQM vs ISO and DFSS vs R&M Case are different things, but the nature of its comparison seems to be quiet the same.
