Abstract: Defect reduction is one of the major actions required for any sort of industry for its continuous growth. During quality check, if the batch undergoes a sampling inspection, the samples taken might be good and the batch might be accepted but in assembly it would affect a lot. 100% inspection using metrological instruments also consumes lot of time and it is expensive. To avoid all these, Kaizen would be the best and effective method which should be implemented at suppliers and customers base. This will also reduce the cost of inspection and the time required for to do so. With the help of Kaizen green channel is also possible at customer place such that the components received might directly use at the assembly without any inspection. This paper presents, with the help of Kaizen, how the actions can be initiated and implemented at the suppliers place to reduce the defective percentage and make it as green channel supplier.
