EE Times Engineering Quality Survey
Help us get a sense for the level of quality in electronics engineering today by spending five minutes filling out this survey, questions for which were conceived by EE Life readers.
Do you think the quality of products you use in your work over the past few years is
If you answered worsening, why do you think that is?
Has the quality of the components that you use put at risk your ability to successfully complete your projects?
How can you tell if the components that you choose have sufficient quality and support?
Do you think, on average, that companies provide sufficient quality and support for their products?
Have you ever used a vendor's "peer support forums" or similar "self-help" service to address an issue?
If you answered "yes," do these forums usually do a good job of resolving your problems?
Does your company give you enough time to put quality into the products and documentation that you work on?
When determining whether to undertake a particular action to improve product quality, what timeframe is used by your organization to make the decision?
The action must show a positive return this quarter
The action must show a positive return within a year
The action must show a positive return within five years
The action is usually approved regardless of ROI
The action is usually rejected regardless of ROI
How is that timeframe different from 10 years ago?
About the same
I haven't been working that long
For what kind of organization do you work?
Publicly traded corporation
Privately held company
What can we do as a group to encourage companies to provide good quality and support for their products?
What do you think about an Engineer's Quality Seal of Approval that is awarded to companies and products that are recognized to provide consistent quality and support, an award that is used to distinguish those companies and products that do well in the area of quality, documentation and support? Would this recognition inspire some companies to do more quality work for the recognition?
