Process Control and Quality Control

  • Philip K. Freakley


Quality control has traditionally been concerned with the setting of standards which must be maintained at each stage of manufacture, followed by the manual monitoring of process supplies, operations, and products, to check if the specified standards are being maintained. In contrast, process control has been almost entirely concerned with the design and performance of systems for maintaining machine conditions and controlling machine operations. However, both quality control and process control have the common objective of enabling products which are acceptable to the customer to be produced at a cost which ensures both a competitive price and a viable profit margin.
