A metal is a solid material (an element, compound, or alloy) that is typically hard, opaque, shiny, and features good electrical and thermal conductivity. Metals are generally malleable - that is, they can be hammered or pressed permanently out of shape without breaking or cracking - as well as fusible (able to be fused or melted) and ductile (able to be drawn out into a thin wire). 91 of the 118 elements in the periodic table are metals.

In the context of quality management, metal refers to a type of material that is typically composed of a combination of one or more elements, including iron, nickel, aluminum, copper, and others. Metals are widely used in various industries, including construction, transportation, manufacturing, and others, and their quality is an important factor in ensuring the performance and safety of products and systems.

Examples of metal in quality management include:

  • Steel: widely used in construction, manufacturing, and transportation, steel is an alloy of iron and carbon that is valued for its strength and durability.
  • Aluminum: lightweight, durable, and highly conductive, aluminum is used in a wide range of applications, including construction, transportation, and packaging.
  • Copper: a highly conductive metal with good heat resistance, copper is widely used in electrical and electronic applications.
  • Stainless steel: an alloy of iron, chromium, and nickel, stainless steel is valued for its resistance to corrosion and staining, making it a popular choice for kitchenware, cutlery, and other applications.

In the quality management context, metal quality is assessed and controlled through processes such as inspection, testing, and quality control protocols to ensure that it meets specified requirements for composition, strength, and other properties, and that it is safe for use in various applications.
