QUALITY ENGINEERING set of operational, managerial, and engineering activities that a company uses to ensure that the quality characteristics of a product are at the nominal or required levels and that the variability around these desired levels is minimum

VARIABILITY Sources of this variability include differences in materials, differences in the performance and operation of the manufacturing equipment, and differences in the way the operators perform their tasks.

Describing Variability in terms of Statistical Methods Variables data are usually continuous measurements, such as length, voltage, or viscosity Attributes data are usually discrete data, often taking the form of counts

Quality Characteristics are often evaluated relative to specifications. the specifications are the desired measurements for the quality characteristics of the components and subassemblies that make up the product, as well as the desired values for the quality characteristics in the final product

Nominal or Target Values bounded by a range of values that, most typically, we believe will be sufficiently close to the target so as to not impact the function or performance of the product if the quality characteristic is in that range
