APS-4020 Applied Quality Management

The Applied Quality Management course provides students with the knowledge and techniques required to improve product quality and process efficiency by identifying and measuring production process variability, which, if not successfully addressed, leads to inconsistent product quality, costly wastage, nonstandardization, and other reliability and productivity problems. This course introduces basic quality management concepts and definitions and builds on that knowledge to explore Statistical Process Control (SPC) based quality improvement techniques as a means to diagnose, reduce, and eliminate causes of variation and to assist in process improvement, production control, production planning, and decision making. A brief review of the fundamentals of statistics and probability and their applications in quality management is provided, and various measurement and control techniques for example, charts for variables and attributes, are presented.
