Researchers from the School of Engineering of the University of Minho, in colaboration with the University of Coimbra and the National Observatory of Human Resources Portugal, launched on March 31, the World of Quality of Status Report (2018 edition).
The World State of Quality (WSQ) aims to assess, analyze and rank the different countries performance in terms of Quality. The WSQ collects several indicators that are grouped according to some of the most relevant dimensions related to the Quality field. This could be an important input for several institutions, such as national governments or international organizations due to the easy identification of strengths and improvement areas of each country according to a final score that depends on the ranking position of each country for each indicator, which represents a pioneering way of measuring quality.
The EEUM team of researchers consists of Paulo Sampaio, Associate Professor in the Department of Production and Systems and Catarina Cubo, researcher in the Department of Production and Systems.
