Quality is a much talked-about concept yet there are many different ideas about what quality, and particularly quality management, involves. At one time quality was simply regarded as a conformance system: i.e. the product or service conformed to the specification laid down. This was the era of “quality control” where, in car manufacturing for example, the responsibility for quality rested with quality control inspectors who checked the finished cars as they rolled-off the production line. Modern quality systems work on the basis of “quality assurance” or “total quality management” that embeds quality and the responsibility for it firmly at every stage in the process and with every individual involved. Customers instinctively know what quality is in the delivery of a product or service – and they certainly know when they do not get it! Buses that are late, dirty trains, unexplained delays at airports, goods damaged in transit and late deliveries due to vehicle breakdowns will all be recognized instantly as examples of poor quality.
This course aims at defining quality and explaining the concept of Total Quality Management (TQM) as well as describing the various components of TQM systems and positioning them within the context of logistics and transport activities.
