“Written at the level of an advanced undergraduate, practicing engineer, or an academic with no background in the area, the book provides considerable introductory material with numerous examples describing the basics of quality control and what is meant by service quality and reliability. … This book would be well suited to self-study by anyone needing a basic but rigorous introduction to the principles of quality control and its applications.” (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, October, 2013)
