It is indeed a great pleasure and proud privilege for me to present this treatise on ‘Total Quality Management’ to the immediate benefit of final year engineering students of all branches. This book is written in tune with the latest syllabus of various universities and we have taken the syllabus as guidelines for the organization of this book. In writing this book, the author has constantly kept in mind the tremendous amount of ground which the student and the practicing engineers of today is expected to cover. No effort has been spared to enrich the book with simple language and self explanatory diagrams.

    The most important asset of any organization is its customers. An organization’s success depends on how many customers it has, how much they buy, and how often they buys. Customers that are satisfied will increase in number, buy more, and buy more frequently. Satisfied customers also pay their bills promptly, which greatly improves cash flow the lifeblood of any organization. Increasingly, manufacturing and service organizations are using customer satisfaction as the measure of quality. The importance of customer satisfaction is not only due to national competition but also due to worldwide competition. This is reflected in the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, where customer satisfaction accounts for 30% of the total points.

    It is practically not feasible to produce any two identical or similar products in the first time. If the product is to be designed or fabricated as per the prescribed norms of customers, it is usually produced by a repeatable or stable process. The quality of any product is determined by a specific process to the employed. The desired process must have the minimal variations with regard to the characteristics of the quality of the product. The problem solving tool by which the quantitative techniques are applied to achieve the process stability and to improve the capability by reducing the variability is known as Statistical Process Control (SPC).
