Quality control is a scientific means for conducting observations, tests, and inspections and thereby making decisions that improve the perfomance of industrial processes. This book develops a set of dynamic approaches characterized by coordination. In practice, quality control problems almost never exist in isolation. The basic methodology underlying the studies is Markov decision programming. The book can be used as a graduate text for a new course on statistical process control, or as a reference for researchers and practitioners in mathematics, operations research and operations management, quality control, production planning, and logistics
