Traditional quality management and monitoring has been shown to be unsuccessful. Today, emerging companies are vying for more value to the consumer in order to ensure their maximum success and sustainability. Many businesses want to ensure that their goods and services are of high quality in order to attract customers. The current situation is implementing quality engineering solutions in industries. Quality engineering is the method of evaluating, handling, designing, and maintaining various systems in compliance with high standards. This method ensures that each stage of the product development cycle is subjected to a thorough inspection by quality engineers, reducing possible losses by eliminating defects from the start. Furthermore, highquality maintenance is important and should be made available for a long time after the product has been shipped. Customers' preferences are shifting significantly, necessitating improvements in design and production technology, which is becoming increasingly critical in satisfying individual customers. This necessitates paying particular attention to quality engineering. The paper starts with a review on quality emphasis over the last 37 years, quality concepts, and quality model evolution followed by i) a contrast of quality management and quality engineering, ii) developments in quality engineering tools and techniques, such as statistical process control (SPC), design of experiment (DoE), Taguchi processes, and quality function (QFD). This paper also looks at quality engineering-related problems. There are brief reviews of recent developments in well-known quality tools, such as statistical process control, quality function deployment, and design of experiment. The aim of this paper is to place quality engineering in context and emphasise its significance, as well as to present some issues at the frontiers of quality engineering.

This article describes how software quality engineering is an inevitable activity, which must be accomplished during software development process in order to avoid software failures and ensuring its quality. Embedded systems are computer platforms, which require high quality software. Many researchers interested in embedded systems have demonstrated that the quality of the embedded software has a significant effect on the performances of the entire system. In the literature, several works have been emerged from this line of research. The aim of this article is to present a survey of the most important works, which deal with embedded software quality engineering. A comparative study is also given in order to show strengths and weaknesses of each work.

PurposeThis study was to develop a methodology of online review analytics for hotel quality management at macro and micro levels. The macro level was for understanding the service properties critical to quality and future development. The micro level was for personalized quality diagnosis for individual hotels.Design/methodology/approachTextual reviews of superior hotels were studied using latent semantic analysis and Kano model to understand what service properties customers concern and expect. Taguchi's quality engineering was applied to establish a quality reference base using superior hotels for evaluating other hotels in the same semantic space. A decision tree algorithm was then used to identify the properties critical to quality discrimination, and the decision rules were used to diagnose individual hotels.FindingsThe service properties concerned by customers for superior hotels were identified. The market positioning and value of each property to customers were clarified. For individual hotels, the deficiencies of service properties were diagnosed. With reference to market positioning, deficient properties of priority in improvement and the strategies for enhancing competitiveness were suggested.Originality/valueThe proposed methodology demonstrated the potential value that review analysis can achieve a new and deeper understanding of customer voices and transform it into more specific business operation requirements. The research and application gap that most previous studies only stayed at the macro-level analytics was filled. Moreover, this study effectively applied the diagnostic techniques derived from quality engineering to online review analytics.
