GM Increases Towing and Hauling Figures for 2011 Heavy Duty Trucks ...
135 lbs hauling and 1000 towing? Just enough to beat the Ford. What a joke. This will be good for the sound-byte believing Obama Motors buyers. You know, the comment was made that the Duramax is probably at the end of it's development while the 6.7L Powerstroke is only at the beginning when the Duramax bested the output of the new Powerstroke.

Quality Management and Standards (6), Organizational Development (3), Change Management (2), Manufacturing (2), Mentoring (1), Internationalization and Localization (1) This was selected as Best Answer I used PDCA (PDSA) for many years, implementing the Deming philosophy and TQM. As I began to practice Six Sigma as a methodology for breakthrough process improvement, I used to map DMAIC directly to PDSA at a macro level. I later realized that this works superficially, but that it might not be the most accurate representation of what you do in a DMAIC project.
