Quality Pillar Roadmap

QA Design Deployment

Quality Maintenance (Hinshitsu-Hozen)

is activities “to set equipment conditions that preclude quality defects, based on the basic concept of maintaining perfect equipment to maintain perfect quality of processed goods and products. The conditions are checked and measured in time-series to verify that measured values are within standard values to prevent defects. The transition of measured values is watched to predict possibilities of defects occurring and to take countermeasures beforehand.”
