Chapter 3 Using Quality Assurance for the Best Results In This Chapter ᮣ Understanding the meaning of “quality assurance” ᮣ Managing suppliers for your benefit and theirs ᮣ Evaluating the steps of any process ᮣ Coming up with clear specifications I n the 1980s, companies around the world discovered that if they wanted to compete in the marketplace, they had to dramatically improve quality while reducing costs.
