QA Compass – Process Excellence through Engineering


Once a company realizes that as much as 80% of its product cost and quality potential are locked in with very early design decisions, there is generally a quick recognition of the need to involve manufacturing and quality engineering at the earliest design stages to drive down cost and improve the potential for achievable product quality.  QA Compass attempts to assist organizations by bringing together training resources and best practice guidance from those who have already successfully navigated the same or similar paths.

Also, with Lean’s focus upon driving the complexity out of processes, many firms are also finding themselves revisiting the sources of requirements to reassess what is truly required for compliance – suspecting that there may be significant excess baggage acquired over the years. To help firms answer that age-old compliance question – “How much is enough?” – QA Compass also provides access to many standards, regulations and related guidance.
