Quality Control - Preparing for the Future
Author outlines ideas for future management strategies and the costs (positive or negative) of "quality".
Quality Control - Problem Solving Techniques
Formal problem solving methods (Pareto analysis, Ishikawa diagrams and other statistical methods) are discussed as are informal approaches (brainstorming, flow charts).
Quality Control - Process Capability
Process capability is defined as the inherent reproducibility of a product formed by a given process. A simple statistical approach is given with equations and the use of the method explained.

Quality control - six-sigma controversy
Title system is latest statistical management & production tool, with its roots in, or related to, TQM, Taguchi, Pareto, SPC and other widely accepted methods. It follows the much earlier 3-sigma concept and relates distribution of results (e.g tolerances) about a mean, and their relationship to max and min. limits. Protagonists see this as powerful tool to monitor manufacturing and predict outcomes. Opponents highlight numerous apparent faults. The concept thus remains controversial.
Quality control - SPC quandaries
SPC (statistical process control) does not always provide an answer and its weaknesses are explored, with means of "fine-tuning" it. Concept of "process capability" is defined & discussed with its uses in metal finishing & manufacturing.
Quality Control - Strategies
A range of strategies for QC are summarised, most drawn from textbooks or similar sources. 8 refs
