Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to assess the importance of quality as a competitive and cost factor. Students will be familiar with the basic concepts of general quality management of the DIN EN ISO 9000 family and the DIN EN 9100 family of aviation. They will be able to set up a quality management system in its basic structure and identify core and support processes on the basis of specific company examples and design them to meet quality standards. For this purpose, they will be able to master simple techniques and instruments for efficient process documentation. Students will be able to assess process capability using statistical tools. They will be familiar with the auditing process, have practiced (exemplary) auditing techniques and be able to prepare internal audits. They will have mastered technical transfers to environmental management and occupational safety management systems and will be able to work towards integrated management systems. They will be familiar with the different requirements of the various industries, especially the differences between the general requirements for a QM system and special requirements in aerospace and defense. They will be proficient in the classic quality tools of problem solving, e.g. Pareto analysis, control charts, FMEA, etc., and will be able to apply them appropriately and in keeping with the situation.
