Specializing in Quality Management Systems, Advanced Industrial Statistics, and Lean Manufacturing

Vision and Mission Statement

Henry Ford believed and proved that industry holds the solution to most of society's problems. Nothing has happened to change this; manufacturing, and only manufacturing, can create almost limitless wealth. Manufacturing is the foundation of the United States' affluence and national security, and our nation must preserve and expand its manufacturing base. Industrial methods can also reduce the cost of services while improving their quality, and this has critical implications for health care. It is the mission of Levinson Productivity Systems to help clients achieve this vision through lean manufacturing, statistical, and quality assurance methods.


What We Do

Training and Consulting

  • Webinars (60 to 90 minutes) on the following subjects
    • COVID-19: business aspects, overview of existing resources (e.g. OSHA, CDC) and countermeasures
    • Occupational health and safety (ISO 45001:2018, 6S = 5S + Safety)
    • Corrective and preventive action (CAPA) and root cause analysis (RCA)
    • Acceptance sampling (ANSI/ASQ Z1.4 for attributes, Z1.9 for variables, zero acceptance sampling, sequential sampling, narrow limit gage sampling)
    • Lean manufacturing (identification of waste or muda, Shingo process maps, Henry Ford's key performance indicators, theory of constraints, cycle time, cost of quality analysis)
    • ISO 9001:2015 as our servant, not our master
    • ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 50001:2018 to reduce costs and improve the bottom line
    • Organizational culture (ISO 9004:2018)
    • Advanced quality planning: process failure mode effects analysis (PFMEA) using the new AIAG/VDA manual. This is a significant improvement over previous approaches.
    • Statistical methods (statistical process control, design of experiments, short run SPC, process capability analysis including methods for non-normal distributions)
  • Review courses for ASQ certification exams, deliverable at your site

"How Henry Ford Saves Men and Money" By Louis Resnick. National Safety News, September 18, 1920This is in the public domain due to age (1922 or earlier but we have added numerous annotations that underscore valuable safety principles that are directly applicable to ISO 45001.

Important Alert re: "Complainceskey.com" (June 28 2020)

  • A webinar company called Complainceskey.com (this is not a misspelling, it has a logo that looks like a crown at the top of its web site) advertised a webinar called "Doing Business in the Era of COVID-19" on June 25 at 13:00 EST with William Levinson as the presenter. We do not have a business relationship with the indicated  company, did not agree to present this webinar for them, did not send them the marketing information on their web page, and did not present the webinar for them. Several unsuccessful attempts were made to discuss this with Complainceskey by telephone, and they were directed by E-mail on June 19 to remove my name from their web site. Instead of doing so, they changed the webinar availability to "Jun 25, 2020 - To: Dec 31, 2020." They are for example offering the recorded webinar for $319 and I do not see how they can sell a recording of a webinar which I never presented.
  • Update (September 11 2020) In addition to not removing my name and an advertisement for "Doing Business in the Era of COVID-19," Complainceskey.com has posted an advertisement for "Preparing for the HEROES Act's OSHA Regulations" which is indeed available from Levinson Productivity Systems PC but was never presented for Compainceskey.com which means they do not have any recorded webinar to sell.
  • If you are interested in the indicated presentation, please visit one of the webinar providers with whom we actually do business or contact us (TheBoss "at" ct-yankee.com) and we will tell you when the next one is available or even present it for your company.
