Mini-Quiz: Inspection Methods to Fulfill Quality Requirements

by Ron Kurtus (revised 27 May 2008)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Is giving a student a failing grade on a test an effective way to improve quality?

Yes, it let's him know he is dumb and should do better

No, it is sorting out failures and not addressing the problem

It depends on the age of the student

2. What is an important aspect of Statistical Process Control (SPC)?

It is seeking to improve the process and not the worker

It gives statisticians job security

It weeds out failures before products are delivered

3. Where is inspection by the next worker most effective?

In an office where people like to criticize others

In companies that don't want to hire QA people

In an assembly-line environment

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Total Quality. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Set a tone for quality in your organization
