Quality policy

The quality policy has to be set by top management and issued to the whole organization, so that everyone is aware what the aims of management regarding quality are. The quality policy might be to produce a component that lasts a specific period of time under normal use, can withstand a set number of reversing cycles before cracking, must be able to withstand a defined load or pressure, or on the opposite scale, last only a limited number of years so that a later model can be produced to replace it. A firm of house builders might have a quality policy to build all their houses to the highest standards in only the most desirable locations, or the top management of a car manufacturer might dictate to their design engineers to design a car using components which will not fail for at least five years. There is clearly a cost and marketing implication in any quality policy which must be taken into account.
