Managing for Quality to Achieve Standardization, Improvement, and Transformation

Quality lessons learned have been gradually revealed through progressive revelations to arrive at its current level of maturity which blends many theories pragmatically into a holistic structure: Shewhart’s theory of control, statistical process control charts, and his basic scientific cycle; Deming’s theory of profound knowledge and approach to analytic study of data; Juran’s concept of the quality trilogy and distinction between Big Q and Little q; and Noriaki Kano’s theory of attractive quality – all combine to form an inclusive systems approach to quality in the future.
