Juran immortalized the elusive concept of quality as “fitness for use.” Juran believed that every manufactured article should satisfy an exacting standard of both quality and utility before being offered for sale.

Then a product is carefully designed and constructed to satisfy those needs. As a devoted follower of Juran, I can assure you that he had little use for poor quality.
