W3 Discussion “Product Reliability”

Quality Management

Product Reliability

This week you learned the importance of reliability and the role that it plays in quality management. Consider your recent purchases that you have made over the past year. Using what you have learned this week, define a product that you have purchased that you feel have met reliability standards. Also, describe a product that you feel did not meet reliability standards.

Your initial response should be a minimum of 150 words. Your work should be in your own words and should include research to support your response. Be sure to avoid Wikipedia as a resource as this is not a reliable source. Include your resources at the end of your response. Once you have completed your response, you will want to respond to at least two (2) of your classmates responses. Please remember that your responses to your classmates should be substantive and should promote additional discussion within the classroom. Simple “I agree” responses will not be counted towards your participation grade.
