Investigations in the field of optical system quality assessment mostly are dedicated to the concrete methods of measurement and calculation of the system and to concrete qualimetric experiments. These investigations are supplemented with the reviews and the discussions on general problem of substantiation of criteria of quality. Our communication is a contribution to such a discussion. We consider an optical image forming system. If the optical scheme of the system is chosen, then L variable parameters of the scheme p1...pL should be optimized to retrieve the global maximum of some criterion of quality of the system Q. We discuss the methods of solution of three interconnected fundamental problems, namely, the choice of the measure of quality Q, the choice of the set of the parameters p1...p1, and the representation of the criterion as the function Q.
