The Quality Technicians Handbook, 6th Edition
By: Gary K. Griffith

For all courses in Quality Control, Quality Assurance, and Inspection serving operators, machinists, inspectors, quality technicians, associate quality engineers, and other manufacturing and purchasing personnel; and for ASQ Certification Courses (e.g., Certified Quality Technician and Certified Quality Inspector).

This text covers the core skills that contribute to ongoing quality at the technician level. More comprehensive than competitive texts, it breaks down technical topics into easy-to-follow directions, many of them presented with step-by-step instructions and intuitive visuals. Coverage includes: quality basics, TQM, costs, audits, inspections, drawings, dimensioning, tolerancing, graphical inspection analysis, measurements, surface plate inspection, lot-by-lot acceptance sampling with current ANSI/ASQC standards, SPC, shop mathematics, and more. This edition presents many new and revised review questions, contains answers to odd-numbered questions, adds new coverage of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and offers updated coverage of other topics, including Geometric Tolerancing.


Prepares technical students to succeed with a broader range of quality related tasks. More comprehensive than other competitive books: starts by covering the essential concepts of quality and TQM; then walks through costs and audits, inspections, drawings, dimensioning and tolerancing, graphical inspection analysis, measurement equipment and techniques, surface plate inspection, lot-by-lot acceptance sampling, the basics of statistical process control and shop mathematics, and many other topics.

Easier to understand. Written simply and concisely, with many step-by-step instructions supported with intuitive line drawings and photographs.

Supports flexible use in diverse classroom programs, ASQ certification preparation, and independent study. Designed and organized for maximum flexibility; easy enough to support students with widely diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Helps students regularly check and confirm their knowledge. Presents review questions at the end of every chapter, as well as many in-chapter practice problems.
