 Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to provide students with basic knowledge of quality and reliability with information that will enable them to actively use computational tools for evaluation and management of quality and reliability. The course offers students a basic approach to quality philosophy and its theory and practice. Students will learn to use some mathematical tools for quality and reliability management and to interpret the results of this mathematical processing.
