The essential purpose of this guidebook is to summarize the study of quality management tools, with proven traditional practices widely applied, as well as, innovative methods. Anyway, a qualified professional or accredited consultant in Quality Management should be always consulted to give satisfactory solutions according to managerial activities.
Successful companies understand the powerful impact customer-deﬁned quality can have on business. For this reason many competitive ﬁrms continually increase their quality standards. For example, both the Ford Motor Company and the Honda Motor Company always announce they make customer satisfaction the number one in priority.
The deﬁnition of quality depends on the role of the people deﬁning it. Most consumers think how difficult it is to deﬁne quality, but they know when they see it. For example, although you probably have an opinion as to which manufacturer of athletic shoes provides the highest quality, it would probably be difﬁcult for you to deﬁne a quality standard in precise terms, such as, airline services, child day-care facilities, college classes, or even English textbooks.
Quality management is the middle of the personnel doing the work. Value for price paid is a deﬁnition of quality that consumers often use for product or service usefulness. This is the only deﬁnition that combines economics with consumer criteria. However, quality control is, sometimes, in conflict with other managerial activities in getting the job completed in the specified or required time, in the real world, even the best contractors may sacrifice some quality for the sake of a single penny.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
