Total Quality Management II
This paper analyzes concurrent engineering environment and its components with a goal of identifying the exact position and contribution of the total quality management concept. The paper evaluates three hypotheses selected from the literature : 1. TQM is an effective integration tool for integrating product and process designs. 2. Design for manufacturability is a component of total quality management. 3. Concurrent engineering facilitates the culture of TQM. All three hypotheses seem to be valid issues in the dynamic environment of today's manufacturing sector.
