Good Clinical Practice: Understanding the Basics - this highly-rated live course has been converted to an exceptional online training!
For example, if the project team finds a defect during the project execution, they will correct it and the feedback will be sent to the quality assurance team. The quality assurance people will investigate the cause of this defect and they will take corrective and/or preventive action in the process so this defect will never happen again in the future.
Guided by shared concepts and rules, the Yokogawa Group implements quality management on a daily basis to deliver products and services that meet customer expectations. Every year, the Group establishes quality targets and measures in the Yokogawa Group Quality Plan and implements quality activities on the basis of this plan to ensure high quality.
Quality Assurance methods include: Random Sampling, 655% Inspection, Scheduled Observations, Unscheduled Observations, User Survey, Validated User /Customer Complaints, Periodic Inspection, and Others as appropriate. (See references for definitions of the sample methods.)
All our funded learning providers are required to demonstrate that they meet SDS quality standards by completing a self assessment and action plan detailing areas of improvement.
Many times, it happens that professionals who work as a QA or QC or QA/QC engineer are not aware of their job responsibilities. They do not understand the difference between the responsibilities of quality assurance and quality control functions, although the difference between them is pretty clear.
This kind of ambiguity is not good for the project and may affect the quality of the deliverable as well as the success of the project.
The Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative (COTR) is responsible for monitoring, assessing, recording, and reporting on the technical performance of the Contractor on a day-to-day basis and has primary responsibility for completing the QASP inspection, evaluation and documentation. It is extremely important for the COTR to establish and maintain a team-oriented line of communication with the Contractor’s Project Manager (PM) and the PM’s office staff when monitoring the SP functions. Meetings should be held on a regular basis in order to identify and resolve serious problems. Key outcomes of the meetings should be documented in the comments section of the QASP Evaluation/Decision/Action Table.
