The basic quality analysis tools are cause-and-effect diagrams, check sheets, control charts, histograms, Pareto charts, scatter diagrams, and run charts.

It describes the advanced quality tools: advanced product quality planning, failure mode and effects analysis, control planning, measurement systems analysis, lean tools, statistical process control, production viability and tryout, and Six Sigma.
