Quality & its definition:
Quality: Each & every product features some special characteristics for which it is in demand by consumers. The history of quality is as old as human civilization itself. Aristotle 2500 years ago defined quality as follows:
*Quality is the difference between products.
* It is the goodness or badness in a product. This definition holds true to this date.
However, in general terms, Quality encompasses important characteristics of a product for which, it is in demand. The quality of a product features in two ways: form & content. Thus Quality may be defined as the features of a product, which satisfy customers or end-users. Quality imparts sale ability to a product. Quality is also referred to as “conformance of goods to buyers’ specifications”. ISO 9000:2000 defines quality as “the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfill requirements”.
Importance of quality:
Every product must feature functional characteristics as well as some other aspects related to its shape, size & design. Consumers always demand the following expectations of the purchased product:
A product devoid of quality has no demand among consumers & as such, has no salability. Excellent quality characteristics enhance the salability of the goods & are the keys to profitability for the manufacturer or the seller. Most importantly, some criteria of customer satisfaction are negotiable but the quality is such a factor that it is not at all burgainable.
TYPES OF QUALITY:
As per excellence of satisfaction, quality may be grouped into three categories:
A black & white television nowadays brings in the only quality of general acceptance while a color television provides to the buyer quality of satisfaction. On the other hand color television with a remote control brings forth a quality of great delight to the buyer.
Quality characteristics in apparel:
In a clothing factory, manufactured garments must possess specified quality characteristics. They are given below:
So the quality of garments implies whether the specified garment has been produced with specified raw materials, with the buyer’s specified stitching & sewing quality, with specified sizes, shapes, design & assortment.
In the clothing industry, demanded quality characteristics of the garments are informed to the manufacturer through the worksheet, approved sample & size spec, etc.
A defect is characteristic of a product that impairs the functional quality or its salability.
A defect is an unwanted feature in a product or the absence of the desired feature or a feature existing in the distorted or wrong way.
A product is called rejected when its functional or service qualities are impaired due to deficiencies of sewing or other work, or due to imperfections of materials or any other type of defects. A product becomes a reject when it loses salability in the market. A single defect in the most visible area of a garment may make it a reject.
