ERASMUS, P.  y  VAN WAVEREN, C.C.. Evaluation of quality concepts influencing a manufacturing environment in South Africa. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.2, pp. 93-105. ISSN 1012-277X.

This article evaluates the influence that quality concepts and tools in a manufacturing environment may have on parameters possibly affecting the future design and development of products in the same company. It attempts to establish how quality results can be utilised to determine the level of quality control tools used, such as Quality Function Deployment and Concurrent Engineering, in a company that designs for manufacture. By establishing links from quality results and customer requirements, the research determines what critical quality tools are necessary to determine the capability to manufacture an item without the use of excessive planning resources.
