Quality Assurance

Everyone knows what QA is, right? Not so fast. There’s a big difference between making sure you’ve completed a particular process or deliverable correctly - quality control (QC), and making sure you’re performing the right steps to deliver market-leading results - quality assurance (QA).

The staff at Applied Quality Solutions can help you with both sides of the coin by leveraging broad experience in process improvement, testing, configuration management, and documentation.

Measurement & Metrics

Ever consider whether your performance metrics are actually measuring what you think they are? How do you gauge success on a project or program?

The experienced staff at Applied Quality Solutions can help you answer questions like these. We will guide you through constructing a practical measurement program that identifies what to measure, when to measure, and how to do it. We’ll also help you build the skills to effectively use the data for management reporting and continuous improvement.
