QUALITY SYSTEMS SPECIALIZATION (QSS) MISSION
The mission of the Quality Systems Specialization (QSS) is preparing professionals for leadership roles in quality. The QSS program is dedicated to providing people with corporate leadership abilities and faculty for the profession. Graduates shall have a global vision encompassing quality systems. The primary QSS focus is to provide people with the ability to manage complex organizations to meet the requirements of customer satisfaction in public and private sectors.
QUALITY SYSTEMS SPECIALIZATION BACKGROUND
The QSS is premised on several elements reflected in the advanced study of quality. These are:
- On going relationship with American Society for Quality (ASQ).
- Project relationships to existing applied research programs in quality.
- Laboratories to support graduate programs in quality.
- Strong relationship to existing advisory committees and industrial contacts.
PRE-REQUISITES FOR SELECTING THE QUALITY SYSTEMS SPECIALIZATION
- An applicable undergraduate and/or graduate degree. For the QSS, this degree should reflect, at minimum, the following type courses (totaling 18 hours minimum):
- 6 semester hours of statistics.
- 6 semester hours of management.
- 6 semester hours of lab-based technical course work
- Mature, continuous participation in quality organizations such as AQP or ASQ.
- Professional certification or recognition related to quality, e.g., CMI, CQM, etc.

This course introduces concepts, principles and techniques used in evaluation and assessment of reliability, maintainability and serviceability in industrial systems. Emphasis is given to theory and techniques to determine time-to-failure, failure rate, reliability and availability of components/systems, including strength-stress analysis, construction of reliability bath-tub curves (RBTC), failure mode and strength-stress analysis (FMEA), fault tree analysis (FTA).
Prerequisite: TMGT 607 or equivalent.
Management and leadership activities related to evaluating, creating and promoting quality standards.
Generation of model system for process improvement and technical problem solving for variation reduction based on documentation in teams at one or more organizational sites.
A focused course on the design and analysis of experiments for industrial applications and applied research. Topics include single factor models, blocking, factorial design, parameter design, process analysis, and response surface methodology. Emphasis is given to problem modeling, implementation and output analysis in applied research.
Prerequisite: TMGT607 (Statistics for Experimental Research in Technology or it's Equivalent).
Analysis and generation of model quality change culture based on actual quality and change-focused projects in organizations, primarily in service industries, through teams.
Prerequisite: TECH 602 or equivalent.
In-depth critical analysis of important issues in the management of quality and the research of those issues.
