Zhai Zhigang (翟志剛), has become the first Chinese astronaut to have a walk in space on 27th September 2008. It is national pride! It reflects the technology and quality in Chinese aerospace industry are at a confident level. In the past, many quality control methodologies were developed in aerospace industry, and the application was extended to civil purpose. Examples of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) in Automotive Industry and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) in Food Industry were developed in the 1960s (USA).
I hope that the new quality control methodologies adopted in the Chinese aerospace industry will be applied to other industries shortly.
