Description

The emerging world economy presents challenges to all industrial nations in productivity, product reliability and customer confidence level. The challenges are being met in various nations by reorienting industries for the production and marketing of “world class” products. Such reorientation requires significant cultural changes, significant improvements in management and judicious implementation of new and developing technologies. Reorientation to “world class” production has been implemented in the United States of America by a Department of Defense initiative that is known as “Total Quality Management or TQM”.
