The objective of the course is to introduce basic concepts and statistical methods employed for assurance of quality in products, processes and systems in an industrial environment (manufacturing and service organizations), such as Management and Control of Quality and Quality System, Statistical Process Control, Process Capability Analysis, Acceptance Sampling, Process Capability Analysis, Design for Reliability, Robust Design and Taguchi Method for Quality Improvement.
Such a comprehensive course is required to be offered by Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Manufacturing/Production Engineering and related departments at undergraduate level and by Management/Business schools at the postgraduate level in any renowned university or educational institute in India and abroad. It is essential that the students studying in these disciplines at UG and PG levels should enroll themselves in this course.
