Teaching methods

Project work


The aim of the course is to learn the basic techniques and methods of quality planning. Attention is paid to the processes of planning quality of products and processes, and selected methods that increase the efficiency of their implementation, such as QFD, design review, FMEA, measurement systems analysis, processes and machines capability analysis and to the group of seven new quality management tools.
