什麼是可拓品質量 (Extension Quality)? 是本人嘗把可拓學及品質管理結一起的方法。「可拓學是蔡文教授自1976年選題用了七年時題。1983年發表論文可拓集合和不相容問題"及宣佈了新學科可拓學的誕生它是人類的各種創新方法、模式及機制歸納而成的一套理論可以解及應用於產品創新化不可能為可能的一套中國原創學科
Quality在香港及台灣譯作品質」,在國內譯為質量」。本人覺得Quality應該包含品(Brand)、質(Quality)、量(Quantity)三個原素在工業的時代,因為供不應求,所以產量第一。當經濟發展起來,人們要求產品有質素(質量/品質)。現今大家都注品牌,它代表產品的個性。
把可拓創新方法和品質管理結合,產品及服務的品質與創新(Quality & Innovation)。其實「創新」「品質」有一共通性,就是將產品、服務以至於商業模式的改進(Improvement)。之後文章會介紹可拓學及其在品質管理中的應用

After 7 years, he published the paper named "Extension Set and Incompatible Problem" in 1983. It marked the birth of new science Extenics (originally called Matter-element Analysis) in China.  Extenics is using formal model to research the extension possibility of things, the rules and methods of innovation, and applying all of them to solve contradictory problems.  The Extenics included three parts and they were Extension Theory, Extension Method and Extension Engineering.


And then Prof. Cai Wen introduced the Extension Theory in which included Basic-element Theory, Extension Set Theory and Extension Logic.  Basic-element (基元) included three key elements (三要素) and they were Object, Characteristic and Value.  Moreover, Basic-element constituted by Matter-element (物元) , Affair-element (事元) and Relation-element (關係元).

And then we tried to do some transformation based on the analysis.  Mr. Qu Jiabin (曲家彬) tried to use same characteristic and value to extend different objects.  


The five basic transformation methods were discussed and the table was used for exercise before and after transformation.


Prof. Cai Wen then explained four Basic Operation of Extension Transformation included PRODUCT, AND, OR & INVERSE.


Finally, Prof. Cai Wen explained different transformation types and the last two types would be in Level 2 training course.
