Excerpts

This book acquaints readers with a variety of the basic skills that contribute to the quality of outgoing products, and covers various quality assurance, quality control, and inspection topics at the technician level. Operators, machinists, inspectors, quality technicians, and associate quality engineers will find the contents useful as a learning text and a quick reference.The Quality Technician's Handbookcan also be used by other manufacturing, quality, and purchasing personnel as a reference for quality-related subjects. Chapter discussions are arranged so that similar topics are covered with continuity, and the text is written at a level that is easy to understand. Numerous illustrations also help the reader to comprehend the material. In many instances, step-by-step instructions lead the reader through a particular method or technique.The book has been very effective as a training aid and reference text for internal quality technician training and for courses designed to help the reader prepare for the American Society for Quality's Certified Quality Technician and Certified Mechanical Inspector examinations. This book can be kept in the machinist's or inspector's toolbox as a quick reference for some problems that come up in the shop.Several changes and additions have been made to this fifth edition: Many new line drawings and photos have been added. Existing line drawings have been revised for clarity. Specific chapter topics have been expanded. More in-chapter practice problems have been included in specific chapters. More review questions have been added in specific chapters. Corrections have been made with regard to errors, clarity of figures, and symbols. Chapter 12,Lot-By-Lot Acceptance Sampling Plans,has been updated to the ANSI/ASQC Z1.4 and Z1.9 standards. TheSolutions Manual(for instructors) has been completely rewritten.For simplicity, many of the solutions to the mathematical problems in this book have been rounded off to one fewer place than the decimal places of the raw data using simple rounding techniques (e.g., 5 or higher, round up). In practice, one should not round intermediate calculations. Only the final answer should be rounded off to significant decimal places.Product quality is everyone's job, and everyone should be aware of the methods for achieving quality. I sincerely hope that this book will continue to contribute toward that goal.
