Abstract:

This book has been prepared for the primary purpose of serving as the textbook in the Graduate Logistics Program and more specifically the Quality Control course. Virtually all of the texts in Quality Control are oriented to the manufacture of new products. The Air Force and the Department of Defense manufacture few products, but procure many products and are responsible for maintenance and repair of vast quantities of equipment. It is the authors beliefs that many of the concepts and techniques of statistical quality control can be used to design and operate quality control systems in many areas of the Department of Defense and the Air Force to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their operations. Included in this text are statistical tolerancing, process control, the statistical background of sampling theory, the attribute and variable sampling plans, and the MIL-STD 105D and 414. Mastery of the included material is only a beginning but will basically qualify the student to establish quality sampling plans and to manage quality systems. Author
