Intended learning outcomes

The course intends to meet industry’s requirements for engineers with knowledge in the quality field. The course will provide a holistic view of the quality field with particular focus on principles, methodologies and techniques for quality management. After the completed course, the student shall be able to;

  • collect, assess and analyse process information in order to systematically identify and solve quality related problems within industry and service.
  • plan and conduct quality improvement projects concerning statistical quality control, design of experiments, product development and process development
  • apply fundamental principles, methodologies and techniques for quality management and with a systems perspective identify situations where these can contribute to industrial development through improvement of products and processes
  • critically assess and discuss forms for organising quality improvements and describe principles for how quality management can be implemented in industrial organisations
  • evaluate and develop policies, goals and procedures for quality management and describe the structure of a quality management system

Course content

Strategies within TQM, Customer focus, Design of experiments, Statistical process control, Capability, Process management, 7 improvement and 7 management tools, Quality Management Systems with focus on ISO 9001:2008.

Teaching and working methods

In order to encourage active learning with our students, the course is organised around a number of project assignments connected to an industrial example. The teaching consists of lectures, where theoretical perspectives are presented; seminars for discussion of cases; tutorials where the students have the opportunity to apply central methods; and regular supervision to support the projects.
