Workmanship_Standards

Numerous voluntary and mandatory standards apply for workmanship depending on the product or service being produced and the surrounding conditions for use of the product. Standards vary from industry to industry as does the level of detail and training required. Workmanship standards should be taken seriously as deficits in workmanship can result in low reliability and repeatability of products and services.
