Welcome to the Cove!

To answer your question, it has been done before (do a search here on the Cove for links) but how about a study of how certification relates to the bottom line.

If I remember correctly, all of the studies I have seen take a look at a lot of industries. Why not just look at the tire industry, and control for things like annual sales, years in business, years since certification, etc? Are there enough non-ISO/QS certified tire companies to get a good sampling?

Good luck!

Welcome to the Cove, Paul:bigwave:

May I suggest we may need to understand what you mean by "thesis" compared to my personal knowledge of the term "thesis."
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
n. 1. A position or proposition which a person advances and offers to maintain, or which is actually maintained by argument.
2. Hence, an essay or dissertation written upon specific or definite theme; especially, an essay presented by a candidate for a diploma or degree.
WordNet Dictionary:
Noun 1. thesis - an unproved statement put forward as a premise in an argument
2. thesis - a treatise advancing a new point of view resulting from research; usually a requirement for an advanced academic degree

Webster's 1913 Dictionary
Hy`poth´e`sis
n. 1. A supposition; a proposition or principle which is supposed or taken for granted, in order to draw a conclusion or inference for proof of the point in question; something not proved, but assumed for the purpose of argument, or to account for a fact or an occurrence; as, the hypothesis that head winds detain an overdue steamer.
An hypothesis being a mere supposition, there are no other limits to hypotheses than those of the human imagination.
- J. S. Mill.
2. (Natural Science) A tentative theory or supposition provisionally adopted to explain certain facts, and to guide in the investigation of others; hence, frequently called a working hypothesis.

WordNet Dictionary
Noun 1. hypothesis - a proposal intended to explain certain facts or observations
2. hypothesis - a tentative theory about the natural world; a concept that is not yet verified but that if true would explain certain facts or phenomena; "a scientific hypothesis that survives experimental testing becomes a scientific theory"; "he proposed a fresh theory of alkalis that later was accepted in chemical practices"
Synonyms: theory, possibility
3. hypothesis - a message expressing an opinion based on incomplete evidence
Synonyms: guess, speculation, supposition, surmisal, surmise, conjecture
The key to a thesis, in my opinion, is to start from a hypothesis about the subject, then to examine literature and perhaps (ranging up into doctoral dissertation territory) do independent research to support or debunk your original hypothesis (the "yes" or "no" of your post.)

So, short of creating your opening hypothesis for you, let me suggest samples you can expand or use as stepping stones to create your own
"working hypothesis" -
(similar to a debate question)
  • Registration to an International Quality Standard gives added value to the registrant in terms of sales, profits, and stock value.
  • Organizations may gain just as much value-added from becoming "compliant" with an International Quality Standard as by being "registered."
  • Organizations can successfully "synthesize" a successful Quality Management System by picking and choosing from various Standards and methodologies, thereby creating their own "special purpose" Quality Standard.
Is this the kind of help you are looking for?

Thx you

Hello every one!
thank you for your help! very very much!

So i will try to clear the dark point!
By "thesis" in french...:

The ubject need to be a question.
This quwestion has to be answered by yes or no /nad for and against.
it need sto be a problem not a real question

with that subject i am able to develop a 3 part 1-thesis 2-anti thesis and 3-synthese
I have some skills in quality and the knolege it is not a big prob for me, I would just have an advice for you guys to see which subject could be intersting and not jsut a **** of paper....

I alredy propos to my university this subject :

Does a Total Quality Management system, installed in order to reach an ISO 9000, has an impact in the overall business for an international automotive industry goupe ?

They told me that it could not work becasu ei can not answer with infovor and against..there is no problem in this question just a simple question!

thnk you many times for your help
