ABSTRACT

Effects of Poor Quality Assurance During German Aviation Manufacturing on the Luftwaffe During World War II   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Thesis Abstract: "The Luftwaffe, under the leadership of Herman Göring, failed to achieve (its portion of) victory for Germany during World War II. This study evaluates the factors that resulted in poor quality assurance and poor aircraft quality within German aviation manufacturing that contributed to the Luftwaffe's failure. Worker shortages eventually led the German aviation industry to shift aircraft production to assembly lines and used unskilled workers that reduced aircraft quality. This study also examines the Allied bombing of German aviation industry factories resulting in the wide distribution of aircraft production, and further decreased aircraft quality. Finally, this study examines slave labor in the aircraft industry and the effects that sabotage and poor workmanship had on German aircraft quality during the war."
