Expert Lecture on Scopes and Basics of Quality Tools in Industries
An expert lecture was organized by IMechE Student Chapter, Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon on Scopes and Basics of Quality Tools in Industries. on 21st September 2017 for Mechanical Department students. Dr. Rajeev Kumar Saha, Asst. Prof., YMCA UST, Faridabad was the keynote speaker.
Dr. Rajeev Saha started the lecture with the discussion on the importance of Quality tools in daily life. He taught the students the seven quality tools, starting with the Cause-and-effect diagram (also known as the "fishbone" or Ishikawa diagram). Cause-and-effect diagram (also called Ishikawa or fishbone chart) identifies many possible causes for an effect or problem and sorts ideas into useful categories. Then the second quality tool is Check sheet, a structured, prepared form for collecting and analyzing data; a generic tool that can be adapted for a wide variety of purposes. The third quality tool is Control charts in which graphs used to study how a process changes over time. Next he explained the fourth quality tool, Histogram which is most commonly used graph for showing frequency distributions, or how often each different value in a set of data occurs. Then comes the fifth quality tools, Pareto chart which Shows on a bar graph where factors are more significant. The sixth quality tool is, Scatter diagram in which Graphs pairs of numerical data, one variable on each axis, to look for a relationship. The seventh and the last quality tool he explained is Stratification: A technique that separates data gathered from a variety of sources so that patterns can be seen (some lists replace “stratification” with “flowchart” or “run chart”).
He told how worldwide popular companies using quality tools for their better production and quality of their products.
At the end of the lecture he taught the most important topics of quality engineering, ISO certification and Six Sigma (6σ) which is a set of techniques and tools for process improvement and seeks to improve the quality of the output of a process by identifying and removing the causes of defects and minimizing variability in manufacturing and business processes. The students were allowed to have interaction with the guests and satisfy them with the answers for their doubts in quality engineering
The lecture was very informative.
