Lots of literature available on the topic of QUALiTY & QUALiTY CONCEPTS, this include the Six Sigma , TQM , Quality Circle , Kaizen , 5S methodology and many others. To get the basic idea of concepts, it is good idea to learn through objective type Question & Answer on the QUALiTY & QUALiTY CONCEPTS.

The benefit of such series is that, series of each of 10 question & answer covers the content from various quality concepts and help to increase the knowledge and skill.

To keep this in mind QUALiTYViVA is going to start series of Q&A on QUALiTY & QUALiTY CONCEPTS, this will comprise of ten questions with its correct answer.
