Abstract

Many changes took place during the past decade in the Israeli market. The Change towards a highly technological and sophisticated Israeli market has resulted in the need for highly trained individuals to oversees the Quality & Reliability assurance operations. The Quality Assurance profession has evolved into a multi-faceted profession that combines, among other aspects, technology, engineering, statistics and managerial aspects. This growing need in the Israeli market for experienced individuals in the Quality Assurance (QA) field has led the higher education graduate and postgraduate schools in Israel and the world to develop programs to certify QA managers.

In Israel, as of 1985 the Quality and Reliability Assurance department of the Technion has released to the market about 295 graduates with MS.c and Magisterial diplomas.

The purpose of this work is to measure the connection between the education and training that a QA manager acquires, and his duties and responsibilities within the organization he is working in. Different educational programs were examined and compared to how they are being implemented in the organizational and corporated.

Organization’s performance improves by the influence of the variables: implementation of the QA tools, employers satisfaction and responsibility to QA culture. The Technion graduates are identified as experts in Quality and Reliability. They are employed by first class organizations in the Israeli Economy, in professional jobs rather than managing ones.
