Electromechanical products have many quality characteristics, representing their quality. In addition, there are long-existed quality problems of electromechanical products, such as poor accuracy, short precision life, large fluctuations in performance, frequently failing, and so on. Based on meta-action unit (MU) for electromechanical products, this book chapter proposes a key quality characteristic control method, which provides theoretical and technical support for essentially guaranteeing the complete machine’s quality. The formation mechanisms of MU’s four key quality characteristics (precision, precision life, performance stability, and reliability) are studied. Moreover, we introduce an overview of key quality characteristic control methods based on MU. The complex large system research method of “decomposition-analysis-synthesis” is adopted to study these key science problems.
