The Glossary for Quality Management +++ 'Water', 'Weld', 'Welding'

In the quality management context, 'water' refers to the element of water and its impact on various processes, products, and systems within an organization. Water quality is a critical factor that can significantly affect the quality of products, services, and the overall performance of an organization. It is essential to understand and manage water quality to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, meet customer expectations, and protect the environment.

A "weld" refers to the joining or fusion of two or more pieces of metal or thermoplastic materials through the application of heat, pressure, or a combination of both. Welding is a critical process in various industries, including manufacturing, construction, automotive, aerospace, and more. Ensuring the quality of welds is essential to maintain the structural integrity, reliability, and safety of products or structures.

Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing coalescence. This is often done by melting the workpieces and adding a filler material to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to become a strong joint, with pressure sometimes used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce the weld
