Perform Quality Control: Outputs
.1 Quality Control Measurements
Quality control measurements represent the results of QC
activities that are fed back to QA (Section 8.2) to reevaluate and analyze the quality standards
and processes of the performing organization.
.2 Validated Defect Repair
The repaired items are reinspected and will be either accepted or
rejected before notification of the decision is provided (Section 4.4). Rejected items may
require further defect repair.
.3 Quality Baseline (Updates)
Described in Section 188.8.131.52.
.4 Recommended Corrective Actions
Corrective action (Section 184.108.40.206) involves actions taken as a result of a QC
measurement that indicates that the manufacturing or development process exceeds
.5 Recommended Preventive Actions
Preventive action (Section 220.127.116.11) involves action taken to forestall a
condition that may exceed established parameters in a manufacturing or
development process, which may have been indicated through a QC measurement.
.6 Requested Changes
If the recommended corrective or preventive actions require a
change to the project, a change request (Section 18.104.22.168) should be initiated
in accordance with the defined Integrated Change Control process.
.7 Recommended Defect Repair
A defect is where a component does not meet its requirements or
specifications, and needs to be repaired or replaced. Defects are identified and
recommended for repair by the QC department or similarly titled organization.
The project team should make every reasonable effort to minimize the errors that
cause the need for defect repair. A defect log can be used to collect the set of
recommended repairs. This is often implemented in an automated problem-tracking
.8 Organization Process Assets (Updates)
Completed checklists. When checklists are
used, the completed checklists should become part of the project's records (Section 22.214.171.124).
Lessons learned documentation. The causes
of variances, the reasoning behind the corrective action chosen, and other types
of lessons learned from quality control should be documented so that they become
part of the historical database for both this project and the performing
organization. Lessons learned are documented throughout the project life cycle,
but, at a minimum, during project closure (Section 126.96.36.199).
.9 Validated Deliverables
A goal of quality control is to determine the correctness of
deliverables. The results of the execution quality control processes are
.10 Project Management Plan (Updates)
The project management plan is updated to reflect changes to
the quality management plan that result from changes in performing the QC
process. Requested changes (additions, modifications, or deletions) to the
project management plan and its subsidiary plans are processed by review and
disposition through the Integrated Change Control process (Section 4.6).
