Asq Introduction To Quality Engineering

Category: Aci Code Requirements And Specifications For Concrete Design, Construction And Repair Training

Course Description

Course Outline

Learn essential quality engineering concepts and tools to enhance your effectiveness as a quality engineer. In this course, participants will learn about quality systems, auditing, product and process control and design, quality methods and tools, applied statistics, SPC, and Design of Experiments (DOE). Participants will enhance their engineering expertise and their effectiveness as quality engineers with this comprehensive introduction to key quality engineering concepts and tools critical to success in the field of quality engineering today. While this course addresses many areas of the body of knowledge for the ‘Certified Quality Engineer’ examination, it is not designed as an exam refresher or a preparatory course for the exam.

Course Methodology

This course relies on ASQ lectures and exercises. In addition, various group discussions and presentations will be used and study groups will be formed to engage participants.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define basic leadership and quality management principles
  • Discuss the relationship between the quality engineer and the quality system
  • Describe product and process design
  • Explain product and process control
  • Apply problem solving tools and basic statistical concepts, process control and process capability plans, acceptance sampling, and attribute control
  • Use various quantitative tools such as process capability and statistical process control, acceptance sampling plans and technical quality tools
  • Justify the incorporation of quality technology in design, customer and supplier relationships, Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM), materials control, measurement, auditing, quality costs and document control within a quality system

Target Audience

Engineers, quality control personnel, inspectors, testing personnel, or those interested in the quality engineering profession.
