Quality engineering is very much related to the quality loss function described in Chapter 2. However, in actual negotiations between vendors or between design and manufacturing engineers or in the quality management of components or products, the tolerances of components or products are specified more often than the quality loss function. This chapter explains how to specify tolerances for components and products at the design stage.
