Subject description


  • selection of course

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • Technical quality as basic engineering discipline,
  • Quality concept and accompany fields (standardization, certification, etc.) ,
  • Quality system management,
  • Total quality management (TQM), techniques for solving problems and quality circle,
  • Procedures and basic tools for quality assurance (control charts, Quality Function Deployment QFD, Failure mode and effect analysis - FMEA, statistical process control - SPC, optimal experiment planning, etc.),
  • Quality and standardization (production, laboratory, service, environment, safety, health care, etc.),
  • Techniques for solving problems and quality circle,
  • Education, motivation and continuous training,
  • System reliability and maintenance,
  • Materials, classification and basic physical and chemical properties.

Objectives and competences:

Aim of the course is to get acquainted with concrete knowledge on technical quality of product and services assurance and achievement on the basis of measurement and testing, processes supervision, tools for total quality management. Student is trained for solving problems with different modern principles and tools for total quality assurance. Candidate become aware of reliability elements and basics of system maintenance. Technical quality in electrotechnik and electronic has basis on physical and chemical properties of materials, that is why in this course basic properties are presented. Explained are polymers, metals, ceramics and composites properties and specific properties for electrotehnics, such as electrical and thermal conductivity and influence of different environment. Basic specifics, requirements and solutions for technical quality are presented on practical examples and problems.

Intended learning outcomes:

Basic concept of technical infrastructure, standardisation, accreditation, European national legislation, standard development, knowledge on fields of standards, quality assurance, knowing of assessor's and certification organisation work, importance of directives, knowledge on total quality management, certification systems, use of tools for quality assessment QFD and FMEA, relation of quality and law, safety and environment, concrete technical knowledge on testing, laboratory work on quality assurance and product safety, preparation of optimal experiment, knowledge on different standards, implementation of quality system, preparation of quality manual according to different standards
