Quality Engineering is a quarterly peer-reviewed scientific journal focusing on quality control and quality assurance management through use of physical technology, standards information, and statistical tools. The journal is published by Taylor & Francis on behalf of the American Society for Quality (ASQ). The editor-in-chief is Murat Caner Testik of Hacettepe University. Previous editors-in-chief have been Frank Caplan (1989-2004), David M. Lyth (2005-2006), James R. Simpson (2007-2008), G. Geoffrey Vining (2009-2010), Connie M. Borror (2011-2012), and Peter A. Parker (2013-2015).

The journal has published several special issues over the years:

  1. Special Issue on Statistical Quality Control in Healthcare (Volume 20, Number 4, October-December 2008)
  2. Special Issue on the First Stu Hunter Research Conference (Volume 26, Number 1, January-March 2014)
  3. Special Issue on the Second Stu Hunter Research Conference (Volume 27, Number 1, January-March 2015)
  4. Special Issue on Reliability (Volume 27, Number 3, July-September 2015)
  5. Special Issue on the Third Stu Hunter Research Conference (Volume 28, Number 1, January-March 2016)

In 2017, the American Society for Quality published a compilation of Søren Bisgaard’s articles that appeared over the years in several of the Society's journals.[citation needed] Bisgaard, who died in 2009, was an extremely productive and insightful scholar of modern industrial statistics and quality engineering. He was a Professor of Technology Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Professor of Business and Industrial Statistics at the University of Amsterdam.[citation needed]

Many of these articles had previously appeared in the Quality Quandaries column of Quality Engineering. The book is divided into four parts, as follows:

  1. Design and Analysis of Experiments
  2. Time Series Analysis
  3. The Quality Profession, and
  4. Healthcare Engineering.
