Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to smoothly introduce the reader to Quality Control techniques from the so-called Seven Basic Quality Control tools: Cause-and-effect-diagram, check sheet, control chart, histogram, Pareto chart, scatter diagram, and stratification. These are basic but powerful tools when used wisely.
