Regardless of your project’s type, size and scope, it is critical to your success to create a high-performance quality plan template that includes all the tasks and activities required for setting up quality targets, assuring expected performance levels, controlling changes occurring in the project, and implementing the quality management process. Planning for project quality in advance allows you to understand possible problems and investigate root causes of those problems.
Project quality control refers to a set of procedures aimed at monitoring and recording status and results of executing the quality management plan and implementing the quality strategy in order to measure performance levels and generate recommendations for necessary changes. Project quality control procedures are performed throughout the project lifecycle. They allow identifying causes of poor quality and recommending actions to eliminate quality gaps and adhere to the original quality requirements. The project quality control process is undertaken by Quality Control Department, or another similar organizational unit.
