Building a Total Quality Organisation (say a Foundry) is not a child’s play. It is the concentrated and conscientious effort of many Foundrymen in their unison who have teamed up to success. It is not as easy as would Shakespeare write his plays. Shakespeare used the 26 alphabets of English language, in various permutations and combinations, to compose his works (plays). On the other hand, foundrymen have sand to their disposal which is rough and coarse aggregates, and cannot simply create that environment, which Shakespeare would easily castle. Yet the foundryman, in order to satisfy his customer, with the same zeal and the same attitude as Shakespeare would have done by aligning letters, must use each sand particle judiciously to world class results. Aligning particle by particle, let each sand particle improve the world, and make his Foundry a World Class Foundry. What are his equipments, tools and the likes? This paper attempts to highlight the role a foundryman must endeavour to exercise through world class activity towards engineering a Total Quality Foundry.
