Characteristics to Evaluate the Quality Assurance Workforce.
Reynolds, Craig Otis
Quality assurance is a vital part of any Navy contract administration activity. It is essential that the personnel involved in quality assurance be of extremely high caliber. The purpose of the paper is to develop a model of the educational background of an ideal quality assurance man. The paper outlines the functions which might be required of each job in the quality assurance organization. The model is then developed and an existing quality assurance organization is compared to the model. The educational backgrounds of personnel are important to their efficient operation. However, other factors are also important. Additional research in the quality assurance area is needed. (NTIS)
