Quality Control in the Food Industry V1

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1170210&cjsku=1170210...
Quality Control in the Food Industry, Volume 1 focuses on the general aspects of quality control in the food industry, emphasizing the controllable factors that affect the quality of the finished product, including the selection of raw materials, processing methods, packaging, storage, and distribution. The book describes the principles of quality control and some important concepts such as sensory assessment and statistical approaches, along with food standards and health problems in quality control. This volume is organized into six chapters and begins with an overview of the application, organization, related problems, techniques, and prospects of quality control. The next chapters focus on the chemical and microbiological aspects of health problems in quality control; fundamental concepts in statistics as applied to quality control from sampling to the estimation of ingredients; and taste testing as an approach to quality control of processed foods. The book concludes by considering the importance, limitations, and problems associated with food standards, with special reference to their international aspects. This book will be of interest to food scientists and technologists, managers in the food industry, and students.

Internal Control

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1030530&cjsku=1030530...
The concept of internal control has developed along with audit practice. As demands have been made for greater accountability in corporate governance, the significance of internal control systems incompanies has increased. Traditionally internal control has had a fairly direct relationship to financial reporting quality but wider approaches to internal control have expanded those boundaries much further. Stakeholders are increasingly concerned with the effectiveness of internal controls, and disclosure requirements are making firms to go public with regard to their internal control systems. From a design perspective, current research suggests that internal control designs are contingent upon variables such as company strategies, risk appetite, regulatory characteristics, and organizational size. Also there ismuch to learn about internal control quality, and the way internal control quality is associated with overall corporate governance quality. This book fills that gap.

Axiomatic Quality

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=227550&cjsku=227550...
The first book to integrate axiomatic design and robust design for a comprehensive quality approach As the adoption of quality methods grows across various industries, its implementation is challenged by situations where statistical tools are inadequate, yet the earlier a proactive quality system is introduced into a given process, the greater the payback these methods will yield. Axiomatic Quality brings together two well-established theories, axiomatic design and robust design, to eliminate or reduce both conceptual and operational weaknesses. Providing a complete framework for immediate implementation, this book guides design teams in producing systems that operate at high-quality levels for each of their design requirements. And it shows the way towards achieving the Six-Sigma target--six times the standard deviation contained between the target and each side of the specification limits--for each requirement. This book develops an aggressive axiomatic quality approach that: * Provides the tools to reduce conceptual weaknesses of systems using a framework called the conceptual design for capability * Reduces operational weaknesses of systems in terms of quality losses and control costs * Uses mathematical relationships to bridge the gap between science-based engineering and quality methods Acclaro DFSS Light, a Java-based software package that implements axiomatic design processes, is available for download from a Wiley ftp site. Acclaro DFSS Light is a software product of Axiomatic Design Solutions, Inc. Laying out a comprehensive approach while working through each aspect of its implementation, Axiomatic Quality is an essential resource for managers, engineers, and other professionals who want to successfully deploy the most advanced methodology to tackle system weaknesses and improve quality.
