Taylor thought that by analyzing work in a scientific manner, the "One Best Way" to perform a task could be found.Before the industrial revolution, quality management was part and parcel of an individual’s activities of designing, producing, and selling to the buyers.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, as a principle of scientific management, the incentive schemes were introduced to boost production, which indirectly resulted in poor quality.With the advent of Scientific Management has led to an immense reduction in the production cost of goods due to proper planning and mechanization.
