In the past, when goods and services were simpler, measurement of quality was self-evident. As business became more complicated, so too did the implementation of quality management and our ability to measure it. Ultimately, the practice of quality strayed from being a business practice to become much more of an engineering discipline producing plenty of data, but little actual improvement. In Quality Management: Theory and Application, highly respected quality management specialist Peter Mauch shows you how to set up a Quality Management System (QMS) that will stay aligned with your business goals. Using examples from actual situations that can be readily applied in any industrial situation, these pages will show you how to: Plan for quality by setting objectives and metrics, and creating effective flexible blueprints, and procedures Get staff involved by understanding how to motivate and train them Establish responsibility and accountability across your entire organization Create the right reporting mechanisms and learn how to analyze them Understand the value and particulars of certification QMS is a performance-reporting system designed to accumulate and report data useful for the achievement of management’s objectives. Combining the technical aspects of quality engineering with successful business management practices, this book will teach you that quality is an ongoing practice, and that it must be implemented throughout an organization rather than stand as the responsibility of one department. Ultimately, through this system, you will align individual departments to continuously maximize quality throughout your entire organization.

Do you remember the first time you drove a car? To prepare for this you probably read the drivers manual, watched movies, practiced in your driveway, and endlessly discussed the impending event with your friends. The result - you knew a lot about the theory of driving, you just didn't know how to translate that theory into practice. Quality Management poses a similar problem to many organizations. The time has come to put Quality Management theory to use. Since the early 1980s, you may have read books and journals, attended seminars and training sessions, or watched films and videos about Quality Management. Once again you must make the jump from theory to application. Quality Management Systems: A Practical Guide for Improvement makes it possible.
