top 8 books for quality professionalsWhat books should be on every quality professional’s reading list? This can be a controversial question—ask ten quality professionals and you may get ten different answers. However, there are certain classics and thought leaders that stand the test of time. ASQ staff compiled a list of the top eight books on quality tools, concepts, and ideas ever published.

1. The Quality Toolbox, Second Edition, by Nancy R. Tague

Quality Toolbox

This is a classic reference and instruction book for new and seasoned quality professionals alike.


It includes a variety of methods, tools, and techniques, from the basics to those created by the author. If there’s just one book everyone in quality should read, it’s probably Quality Toolbox.

2. Juran’s Quality Handbook, Seventh Edition, by Joseph A. De Feo

A thorough revision of the bestselling handbook that has defined quality management and operational excellence for more than 50 years!

3. Root Cause Analysis: The Core of Problem Solving and Corrective Action by Duke Okes

The primary focus is on solving repetitive problems.

The title says it all. In this book, Fordham University professor and Deming expert Joyce Orsini presents Deming’s most important management

The Essential Demingprinciples. The book is a wealth of articles, papers, lectures, and notes on a wide range of topics, but the focus is on Deming’s main message: quality and operations are all about systems, not individual performance; the system has to be designed so that the worker can perform well.

6.Quality Audits for Improved Performance, Third Edition, by Dennis R. Arter

7. Economic Control of Quality of Manufactured Product by Walter A. Shewhart

This classic by quality giant Walter A. Shewhart laid the foundation for the

Economic Control of Quality of Manufactured Product

modern quality control discipline, beginning as an attempt to develop a scientific basis for attaining economic control of quality. In his search for better knowledge of economy in manufacturing, Shewhart touches upon all aspects of statistical quality control.

8. Process Quality Control: Troubleshooting and Interpretation of Data, Fourth Edition, by Ellis R. Ott, Edward G. Schilling, Dean V. Neubauer

Ellis Ott taught generations of quality practitioners to be explorers of the truth through the collection and graphical portrayal of data. From a simple plea to “plot the data” to devising a graphical analytical tool called the analysis of means (ANOM), Ott demonstrated that process knowledge is to be gained by seeking the information contained within the data.

The Certified Quality Engineer Handbook

June 25, 2021

I bought this book specifically to study for the CQE exam and have spent about a month surveying it.

The good- chapters laid out according to the BoK, tables, glossary, index. The chapter breakdown at the beginning makes it easy to find and flip to the specific topic you are looking for.

The bad - poorly explained concepts, topics do not always move seamlessly from one to another making them hard to follow, not enough examples and diagrams to break up blocks of text and make understanding easier

The strength of this book is that it is organized per the BoK. This makes it a great way to begin studying for the test. However, there are better organized and better written desk references out there- Juran's Quality Handbook and the CQE Primer published by the Quality Council of Indiana.

For now a 3 star rating that I may change depending on how useful I find this book in taking my test.

Interview Q \u0026 A for “Quality Engineers”

Like the previous editions of The Certified Quality Engineer Handbook, this fourth edition is intended to provide the quality professional with a reference book aligned with the ASQ Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) Body of Knowledge (BoK). The book was not written solely as a study guide to pass the certification exam, but rather as a comprehensive guide to the field of quality engineering. Therefore, most of the chapters include material that goes well beyond the CQE exam requirements.

Based on the changes to the CQE BoK, as well as helpful feedback from colleagues and reviewers, this revised edition contains the following major changes:

  • A new chapter on risk management
  • An extensively updated glossary
  • New and updated references
  • A new layout

The editors included many new textbook and journal article references throughout the entire book. Within the discussion of continuous improvement methods, they added descriptions of and references to several case studies. These case studies, which include applications in the service industry, give the reader a broader context on how to apply many of the methods discussed in a real-life scenario. In particular, some of these case studies are related to quality in the service industry. Additionally, the editors updated discussions of and references to new technology important to the quality professional, such as Industry 4.0.
