FSI-TRJAcad. year: 2017/2018

Quality as an essential condition for business success. Trend of reaching the quality outputs for ex. TQM (Total Quality Management). A consistent system acces used every time when intervene to the reproduction cycle. Statistical methods and the team work as a base for the control process. The international standards for systems assuring the quality ? ISO 9000 ? methodical outlets for prooving the stability of the quality - certification. The system of metrological support. The list of measuring and controlling tools and problems of computer aided metrological process.
