Integrating Inspection Management Into Your Quality Improvement System

Front Cover
ASQ Quality Press, 2006 - Business & Economics - 150 pages
The inspection of product and process has been a mainstay of quality programs since the inception of manufacturing processes. The purpose of this book is to bring inspection-based systems into the light of modern quality programs and show how they can, with integration, provide support for making big quality gains with little quality investment. This information could be an advantage for any company, small or large, manufacturing or service, that wants to play in the high-quality ballpark but cannot afford the heavy, upfront expenditures that are often necessary in traditional approaches. And it is especially important for those companies that want to establish programs that will work for the future as well as in today's challenging business world.
