Quality control activities

Postby mandarapu Sat Jul 19, 2014 8:57 am

You are asked to select tools and techniques to implement a quality assurance program to supplement existing quality control activities.Which of the following would NOT be appropriate for the purpose ?.

A.Quality audits
B.Statistical sampling.
C.Pareto diagrams
D.Focus groups

This is from pg 326 of Rita. The right answer given is D.But I see why A cannot be right ?.Quality audit is activity in perform quality assurance and cannot be added in 'Quality Control' activities as asked in the question ?. please suggest ?.

You know the question asking which tools in Quality Assurance also available in Control Quality. Except. i.e. Focus Groups.

The seven basic quality control tools are same for Quality assurance and Control Quality.

Option# (D) Focus Groups is the odd one , which is related to Collect Requirement Process group.

Namita,Sunku !!

Question was clear - I thought the tool 'quality audit' - a tool/action in 'perform quality assurance' cannot be moved in to tools of 'control quality'.Per PMBOK audit is in earlier and inspection is in later.The ask in the question is stressing about 'quality control activities' - and I thought 'focus groups',the left out option can be added. Please comment.And not the less - thanking you.
