Concerns are mounting that quality is lagging from components vendors. Help us quantify the situation.
When Don Baechtel and I had dinner in Ohio this summer, he brought a list of industry issues he thought we should all talk about it. Atop the list was quality, which isn't particularly good in his eyes.
We probed it and reached out for your help crafting a survey in " " You responded. We've fielded Quality sucks, doesn't it? , using your comments, that tries to quantify the issue. Please take about five minutes to a survey . answer the questions Baechtel sets the stage with an essay " " in an effort to help us take the conversation to the next level. Where has quality gone…and what can we do to get it back? Do we need a quality seal of approval in engineering? How do we hold our vendors more accountable in delivering quality components? Do we need to hold our own managers more accountable in our product-development?
