The Quality Planning & Control (QPC) Laboratory gives students an opportunity to learn about modern methods to measure and analyze variables of parts and components and integrate their results into the production of products. The lab emphasizes the role and integrates the concepts of statistics, design of experiments, total-quality management, and knowledge of manufacturing processes in contemporary manufacturing practice.

The lab and the primary course it serves, Quality Planning and Control (MME 334), incorporate realistic, case-based problems and modern concepts in statistical quality control. Automated inspection systems with CAD integration immerse students in the fundamentals of design and reverse engineering.
