Abstract. The applications of Total Quality Management which now constitute the main factor of production and industrial life, are becoming widespread each day. This study evaluates the place and the role of the physicist in the development and the application of measuring and control methods providing information on quality, environment and especially reliability, which is one of the most significant components of these concepts, acting as a guide and known as Nondestructive Testing Methods in technology. Basic physical principles of the techniques, employed in practical applications as well as research and development stages of different fields requiring advanced technology, are presented and their advantages and disadvantages in usage are demonstrated in a comparative way.
