Quality Leadership 100 Reprint - Quality Magazine - March 2008 Issue
Quality Magazine conducts an annual Quality Leadership 100 survey. More than 800 manufacturers participated in the Quality Leadership 100 survey. These companies were surveyed on criteria such as scrap and rework as a percentage of sales, warranty costs as a percentage of sales, rejected parts per million shipped and contribution
of quality to profitability and shareholder value. Companies also were evaluated based on the number of quality programs in place; registration to various standards; percentage of employees dedicated to quality responsibilities; average number of hours monthly that employees receive quality training; and the role quality professionals play in the acquisition of test, measurement and inspection tools, software and services. These are the results of this survey as published in the March 2008 issue of Quality Magazine.
