Chapter 29: Quality Management during Monitoring & Controlling the Project


Aim: To understand the Perform Quality Control process

In the project context, quality is not only defined as delivering the right thing at the right time and at the right cost, but also delivering to customer expectations. As such, you, the project manager, have to ensure that the required metrics, tolerances, reports, and checklists are in place to ensure a quality-prone execution and delivery sandbox is in place. The perform quality control process enables the project manager to assess the level of quality of the project’s deliverables and take any required action.

The table below shows the inputs, tools and, techniques, and outputs for the perform quality control process.
