Quality I what you define it as. It's particularly upsetting when you rapist so many companies can't meet their own low standards.

What becomes even more amusing is when a company suddenly puts EVERYTHING in their ISO standards. It's fun watching them shoot themselves in the foot.

It had nothing directly to do with standards and was all about consistency - if you had it and produced wonderful products or crap products then that's what you'd consistently produce! The whole thing that a lot of companies didn't get (want?) was that it was a process - ideally you documented what you did and then reviewed it. Was the quality good? Customers happy? Etc.
