Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of this paper is to establish a linkage between quality control, the production learning process and the firm’s propensity to use quality control under various conditions. A stochastic dynamic programming approach together with a numerical example are used to compute quality control policies and justify the intensive use of quality control in manufacturing.
