The Deming Prize is one of the highest awards for Total Quality Management (TQM) in the world. It was established in 1951 to commemorate the late Dr. William Edwards Deming, who contributed greatly to Japan's proliferation of statistical quality control after World War II. Deming's teachings helped Japan build the foundation on which the level of its product quality has been recognized as the highest in the world.
