Quality, Quality Assurance, Reliability, Maintainability, Leadership


Quality and Reliability terms are often used in relation to each other in reference to product or service. Though, both the terms seems to have independent meaning, but are interdependent while using these terms in reference to product or service. So, we must consider both the terms carefully so as to provide an integrated and total view of all aspects which form Quality Consciousness, at all stages (conception, design, manufacturing, marketing etc.) in the life cycle of a product.

The modern concept of Quality Assurance (QA) is normally used to achieve a balance of all the three aspects- 1) Quality, 2) Reliability and 3) Maintainability etc.                                                                                                                                  

  For the competitive environment, Quality Assurance (QA) has gained wide importance in industry and is generally being introduced and experimental in educational institutions. However, educational system can’t be treated as industry. But, there are similarities with respect to their sub-components. Each of these viewed, as a system consists of input, process, management, resource, output and feedback. Educational institution system is complex, as it involves human being as input and output from the system. Students are input and customer too.

Therefore, Organization Culture it is important in promoting of TQM, because it is consist by Teachers feel free to contribute ideas and their involvement in problem solving and decision making.

 Leadership is responsible for promoting commitment in a educational institution towards skill development.  Leadership is not autocracy or democracy. The various management experts become a ‘situation’ leader by coordinating with staff about what kind of leadership they need through a diagnostic process of analyzing their students need
