Summary

The language of industrial processes are being detected and decoded with on-line computers and statistical tools. This represents an evolution in applied quality assurance concepts, which preceded the current interest in statistical process control, and will be discussed. It will be related to some external forces responsible for the new advocacy relationship seen between production and quality assurance technology.
