Building Quality Management the history of quality can trace its roots back centuries when craftsmen began organizing into unions called guilds. When the Industrial Revolution came, early quality management systems were used as standards that controlled product and process outcomes. As more people had to work together to produce results and production quantities grew, best practices were needed to ensure quality results. Eventually, best practices for controlling product and process outcomes were established and documented. These documented best practices turned into standard practices for quality management systems.
Quality Systems are most commonly dealing with quality control in industrial manufacturing, some programs are specialized and designed to build on a student’s degree. Earning a certificate or degree aids in achieving the professional quality control certification, but work experience is necessary. Required courses depend upon the program’s focus, but include technical mathematics, engineering economics, and statistics in quality control.
