Deming's principles are overly people dependent and blame the system when something goes wrong, which might not be true most of the time. This would have probably increased waste, inventory, production/labour costs while significantly lowering the productivity. It probably worked in the 40's and 70's just because nothing else existed.
In modern business environments, TQM/TPS principles might be used as a mere reference while embracing the concepts of Six Sigma and LEAN which are more process/data oriented and proven beyond doubt.
