Abstract

JUST over a year ago the Institutions of Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers held a joint meeting in London to discuss “The Application of Statistical Control to the Quality of Materials and Manufactured Products”. That conference, attended by the Ministry of Supply and some eight hundred members representative of the engineering industry and the Services, both Armed and Civil, is destined to become a landmark in the world of British engineering practice, and for two very good reasons: First, because the conference officially sponsored the idea that the science of statistics has a place in the field of engineering production; and, second, because the conference officially recognized the fact that product quality is every whit as important as manufacturing output, that is to say, product quantity.
