Can someone please clarify this Business question for me thanks?

This is the question (Summarize your recommendations for this corporation in terms of what they should be looking for in their results from the point of view of QUALITY ASSURANCE and MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE) to improve profitability in its manufacturing operations. The company had very good metrics for managing plant and assembly operations. The problem was that each facility used different methodologies for standards development and line balancing. While these techniques had resulted in productivity gains, management believed more significant and consistent results could be achieved using a proven, consistent methodology. For the initiative to be truly successful, the company would need to change not only the technical side of its manufacturing process, but also the company culture, including how its employees performed their jobs. Prior to the project, the typical line re-engineering took an average of six months to complete and implement. With such a significant savings opportunity, the company wanted to realize the savings much faster than six months per line. To accelerate the realization of this cost savings opportunity, the company reviewed proposals from several consulting providers before choosing you to assist them with the improvement initiative. To begin, the company wanted to balance assembly lines in three separate facilities. This would allow the company to increase assembly line productivity, while creating a consistent balancing tool for multiple facilities. The initiative would also provide the companies engineers with a tool to evaluate method improvement ideas in a timely and accurate manner, and offer tools, training and documented processes for supervisors to follow in other manufacturing plants. To achieve success, the company needed a consistent methodology that would allow workers across its manufacturing facilities to “speak the same language,” by using the same tools and techniques. so im really not sure what this question is asking. but this is what i got so far, is it right and am i on the right track and also can you also give me more ideas to add thanks alot This is what i got (From what I read you need my recommendations in the following areas: Quality Assurance and Management structure. Let me start off stating what Quality Assurance is. QA is an operational activity whose primary focus is to make sure that the firm’s overall quality objectives are met. It is a great idea to make QA plan for every project to make sure the final products are of the upmost quality. First you need to find out what needs to be done. Next you need to make sure you know your quality objectives for the product. After you discovered that it is good to write down all the roles and their responsibility for the project and give the workers their roles. It is important to make sure after assigning their roles they understand everything it’s asking of them. Lastly set a deadline in which these roles are to be complete. If you follow this the quality of the product will never change.)
