Description

For all courses in Quality Control, Quality Assurance, and Inspection serving operators, machinists, inspectors, quality technicians, associate quality engineers, and other manufacturing and purchasing personnel; and for ASQ Certification Courses (e.g., Certified Quality Technician and Certified Mechanical Inspector).

 

An ASQ best-seller, this text covers the core skills that contribute to ongoing quality at the technician level. More comprehensive than competitive texts, it breaks down technical topics into easy-to-follow directions, many of them presented with step-by-step instructions and intuitive visuals. Coverage includes: quality basics, TQM, costs, audits, inspections, drawings, dimensioning, tolerancing, graphical inspection analysis, measurements, surface plate inspection, lot-by-lot acceptance sampling with current ANSI/ASQC standards, SPC, shop mathematics, and more. This edition presents many new and revised review questions, contains answers to odd-numbered questions, adds new coverage of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and offers updated coverage of other topics, including Geometric Tolerancing.
