Abstract: In business and industry, the focus is often solely on product quality. This is okay, provided we recognise the multitude of other factors that can impinge on product quality. The premise of this article is that product quality is a function of data quality. As such, data quality is a requirement for product quality. This article presents a combination of the qualitative and quantitative framework for enhancing product quality on the basis of assessing the quality of the input data.
Keywords: data; data quality; product quality.
