Machine capability

Machine capability is determined by comparing the tolerance and variation in production with a single production setting. Mathematical and statistical methods are usually used for assessment and verification considering both short-term variations following a major process-influencing failures and factors independent from the machine itself.

Machine capability test

Machine capability test is a qualification test of machinery used for production of individual products.

Management

Management system

System to establish policy and objectives and to achieve those objectives.

Maturity level

Maturity level estimate

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Automotive SPICE .

Maturity level profile

Reference to a VDA publication (if the definition is specific to a particular publication, different from it, or complementary to an applicable standard): Automotive SPICE .

MBO - Management by Objectives

Management by objectives so that managers have fewer things to worry about and initiative is promoted as well as staff motivation. This requires establishment of procedures for setting, monitoring and achieving objectives.

Means of production

The term stands for all the equipment and its components used for production, adjustment, testing, transportation and storage of customer's products (e.g. machinery, equipment, tools, agents, gauges).

Measurement

Measurement is an experimental procedure to determine particular values of physical quantities as multiples of a unit or reference values.
