A study of the techniques used to collect, organize and analyze information which can be used in making decisions regarding quality. The course will begin with a review of the basic principles of statistics and probability and will then develop such topics as process capability, process control, acceptance sampling and reliability. The scope of quality will be expanded to include such topics as reliability, quality costs, product liability, 6-sigma and quality systems. Activities will provide the student with the opportunity to apply the principles developed in the classroom through the use of computer examples and “hands-on” exercises. (Prerequisites: MATH 251C).
