This paper reviews these two types of literature on quality control: 1) books, pamphlets and articles that describe what quality control is and what role statistics plays in quality control; and 2) some published examples of the use of the quality control process and of statistical techniques in the electronics industry. The quality control process is described as a dynamic operation concerned with all the coordinate steps in the specification, production, and inspection of goods to satisfy consumer wants. This is in accord with the writings of Dr. W. A. Shewhart, the originator of statistical quality control. Progress is being made in the use of quality control for improving the reliability of electronic components and equipments.
