Abstract: In the pursuit of better quality under the spirit of continuous improvement, it is appropriate to inquire about the potential limit of quality. Using quality engineering and technology tools and techniques, can we continue to improve quality indefinitely, inching toward the limit of quality ever so infinitesimally? This paper presents a postulation of an asymptomatic approach to the limit of quality based on the mathematical reasoning of pi. While there is no mathematical correlation of pi to the physical quality of a product, it is interesting and inspirational to conduct research on the move toward the best possible point on the quality curve. In this regard, the motivational question is 'what is the limit of quality?' The methodology of this paper suggests some interesting analogies.
