Abstract

From May 17, 1989 to June 1, 1989, a survey team organized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology visited Japan to assess research and applications of statistical quality control technology. The team explored the philosophy and conduct for total quality control (TQC) in Japanese industries, government laboratories, and national agencies. The philosophy and practice of TQC in Japan is quite different from that of the U.S. industries.
