ABSTRACT



Quality, alongside economical and ecological effectiveness, is becoming one of the basic preconditions of functioning of companies on the market of material and service products. This also refers to companies carrying out machine processes in agricultural production which must implement and apply systems of quality management. One of the problems in this area is, among others, the number of criteria making up the global quality process which is not always rational. It happens fairly frequently that significant expenditures are necessary to fulfil certain criteria which are of little impact on the global quality. In the presented paper, the authors employed information entropy to present an original method which allows assessing sets of quality criteria of machine processes from the point of view of rationality of their application in the process of the quality system implementation.

Key words: agricultural machine, machine processes, quality, information entropy.
