|Course #||Courses||Length (Hours)||Distance||Status|
|QUAL1030||Fundamentals Of Quality Assurance
Description: Recommended: MATH1385 or equivalent. This course provides an introduction to quality assurance and control programs within a business organization. Topics include the nature and history of quality, factors which affect quality, quality inspection and verification. The course will also deal with collection, analysis and interpretation of data, histograms and frequency distributions, probability and its applications, normal and binomial curves, control charts for variables and attributes, and statistical sampling.
|DIMM1090||Geometric Dimensioning And Tolerancing
Description: Recommended: Mathematics Level IV or Mathematics Grade 12 (General or Advanced) or equivalent AND the ability to read engineering drawings. The course extends basic engineering drafting skills to the applied principles of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing. Emphasis is placed on interpretation and application symbols to drawings, measurements and quality control.
|QUAL1160||Introduction to Six Sigma
Description: Recommended: QUAL1030 Fundamentals of Quality Assurance and QUAL1050 Statistical Methods of Quality Assurance or equivalent. The introduction to Six Sigma will cover the following topics: what is Six Sigma, Six Sigma background and fundamentals, Six Sigma assessment, the myth of quality cost, performance assessment, Six Sigma metrics, why Six Sigma works, Six Sigma practitioners in Six Sigma programs.
Description: Recommended: Mathematics Level IV or Mathematics Grade 12 (General or Advanced) or equivalent. This course will examine the principles of dimensional metrology, applied precision measuring instruments relating to the geometric features, and complex measuring instruments. Topics will include optical, electronic and pneumatic instruments and co-ordinate measuring machines. The integration of the measuring instruments within the manufacturing cell is studied together with the required interface devices.
|QUAL1050||Statistical Methods Of Quality Assurance
Description: Recommended: QUAL1030 Fundamentals of Quality Assurance or equivalent. This course develops the more advanced statistical techniques to evaluate quality, analyse processes, products and out-of-control conditions, solve manufacturing problems, establish and evaluate specifications and tolerances, and reduce product variability. The course will develop the skills of statistical analysis and decision making, testing of hypotheses, risks of incorrect decisions, estimation of population parameters, sample size determination, analysis of variance, correlation and regression techniques.
