The CIP project targeted customer satisfaction issues at the PSU computer labs. Various areas of improvement were evaluated using interviews, surveys and Delphi analysis system. Cause analysis was done and countermeasures were planned. The plan was implemented and the results measured and compared against the pre-implementation metrics. The plan was then standardized across all the labs. This study has utilized the basic concepts of TQM and CIP process to apply learning to various situations, to target the customers, get management buy-offs and implement CIP plans and gain positive results.
