Click here to learn more about A.V. Feigenbaum through ASQ website.
I have his famous book “Total Quality Control” in third edition in 1991.
Mr. Gregory H. Watson (Past-President and Fellow of the American Society for Quality; President of the International Academy for Quality) has written an article named “Feigenbaum’s Enduring Influence” in Quality Progress in 2005. He said Feigenbaum has been a role model for managerial innovation and its implementation. Feigenbaum has earned a unique place in the history of engineering through his definition, advancement and execution of the principles of TQM.
Feigenbaum combined academic theory with practical performance to reform his ideas into his approach and highligths of his career were showed in the following diagram. (Form Gregory H. Watson article page 53)
It is a great loss in the quality world!
