The importance of Quality has become more and more important as much in the industrial world as in social life. Quality is nowadays understood both as "Total Quality" and as complex property of a product, and represents an imperative to be more competitive and to guarantee an orderly development of production, and to ensure a total compliance of the expectations and of the needs of users and customers. The aim of the research is an attempt to find the right trend to follow to integrate Design Methodologies and the developed Quality Indicators within a proper "Assessment Procedure" that allow us to define the way to cover in order to improve products Quality and assure an optimal compliance with the Quality Standards in Industry.
