ESI 4221C: Quality Analysis and Quality Control
Course Description for Quality Analysis and Quality Control
Quality Analysis and Quality Control
Prerequisites: STA3032 and EMA4502
Description: This course introduces the concepts of quality assurance and quality control in manufacturing processes with observable output variation. The course topics include an introduction to design of experiment (DOE), a survey of factors affecting variation in product quality, the use of control charts to evaluate and control manufacturing processes, and a survey of techniques for acceptance and reliability testing. Physical exercises and simulation are used to illustrate the monitoring and control of manufacturing processes through the identification and measurement of output variation, analysis of failure distributions, and implementation of engineering controls.
