Selection and Effectiveness of Quality Engineers and Inspectors

  • Ken Stout


The selection of quality engineers and inspectors is important in that they have a large effect on the quality of the products within a company. Clearly, there is the temptation to devalue the role so as to minimize nonproductive costs, but this may lead to ineffective control and maintenance of standards. An equally ineffective solution would be to employ people who are overqualified to undertake the necessary role, and who through boredom become disenchanted with their job function. Also, the overqualified, over zealous inspector may start rejecting components for effects other than those to which he should address his attention, such action may not in fact improve the performance of the product.
