Chapter

Abstract

The aim of testing may be one of the following:
  1. (a)

    to determine the progress of some process (production control)

     
  2. (b)

    to determine the change in properties as the ingredients are varied (research and development);

     
  3. (c)

    to control batches within close limits to some standard (quality control)

     
  4. (d)

    to determine whether a product is likely to be suitable fora particular use (marketing/quality assurance).
