Industrial engineering and TQM

Industrial engineering and TQM Examines the concepts that underlie the discipline of industrial engineering (IE). Then draws parallels between the concepts of total quality management (TQM) and those of IE. Suggests that TQM and IE are not too dissimilar in their approach to the general problem of industrial efficiency and points out that this type of comparison can help in guiding applications and in the general understanding of both disciplines. Concludes with a brief discussion of IE and TQM education in Hong Kong. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Training for Quality Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Examines the concepts that underlie the discipline of industrial engineering (IE). Then draws parallels between the concepts of total quality management (TQM) and those of IE. Suggests that TQM and IE are not too dissimilar in their approach to the general problem of industrial efficiency and points out that this type of comparison can help in guiding applications and in the general understanding of both disciplines. Concludes with a brief discussion of IE and TQM education in Hong Kong.
