0.67 CR
The challenge for manufacturers is to reduce costs without sacrificing quality. Low quality and defective parts drive up the costs of production which naturally drives up the price of the finished product. One advanced manufacturing system used by many companies is lean manufacturing which has as its goal to eliminate all waste during the entire manufacturing process, from customer order to final delivery. In this module, the student will learn about systems to manage quality and receive an introduction to Lean Manufacturing.

  1. Describe quality systems and quality methods.
  2. Develop a quality plan.
  3. Apply quality management principles to manufacturing processes.
  4. Calculate the components of a Statistical Process Control (SPC)
