An Overview and Introduction
Quality is one of the basic principles concerned with measuring and developing performance in various areas. Total Quality, in its administrative concept, is considered a regulatory mechanism governed by specific norms and standards that can be applied to administrative processes in commercial, industrial and service enterprises. Doing so ensures the coordination and optimal use of inputs, outputs and resources to achieve continuous improvement throughout various levels of the organization across the enterprise.
