What Our Clients Have to Say

We've used QualPro for a number of things in DuPont. Everything from yield programs to uptime programs to sales and marketing, dealing with environmental problems, capacity release, and cycle time.

DuPont, Dave Rurak, Operations Business Leader

You're going to try multiple ideas; you’re going to allow things to interact which you don’t do when you’re doing just one factor at a time experimentation. So all sorts of new interactions, nuisances, changes are going to occur that you are not going to see one factor at a time. It opens up a whole new view of the process you are looking at. . .[We] could have required a. . .multi-million-dollar scrubbing unit. . .on the tower. The experiments we did allowed us to do it at zero cost. . .The bottom line is this. This stuff works!

Dyno Nobel, David Pruett, Vice President Manufacturing

[MVT was] a big tool to get our operators really involved in the process. . .People got involved, and they were able to see results quickly.
