The rich palette of topics set out in this book provides a sufficiently broad overview of the developments in the field of quality control. By providing detailed information on various aspects of quality control, this book can serve as a basis for starting interdisciplinary cooperation, which has increasingly become an integral part of scientific and applied research.
Descriptive statistics were used for demographic variables, expressed as mean and standard
deviation in the case of continuous variables with a normal distribution. In case of an
asymmetrical distribution the median and inter-quartile (IQ) values were used.
Noncontiguous variables were presented as frequencies. The Shapiro-Wilk test was used to
determine a normal distribution.
Oversight is an important role assumed by the Bundesbank in the field of payment transactions. This

machine industry. But within the industrial field the movement for standardization has outrun the urging of
commercial needs, and has penetrated every corner of the mechanical industries.
