Quality Engineering attempts to illuminate the economic significance of quality problems and determine methods of solving them independent of the production process. It differs from quality control, which is used during the production process to affect quality. Quality Engineering is concerned with variety and quality; variability loss and tolerance; determining tolerances; tolerance design and experimental design; off-line quality control; parameter design and tolerance design; and the design of experiments.
