Quality Management

Quality Management

  • Quality is the degree to which requirements are met

  • We enable you to define, plan, implement and secure your Q-requirements along the entire value chain in a target- and outcome-oriented way

  • Quality is no coincidence – quality can be planned!


The magic triangle: time, cost and quality

It is a major challenge to plan the design of this triangle. We help you to define and implement it in a way that quality, costs and timelines reflect and fulfill the needs of the project and the customer.

In our experience, the balance of the triangle does not only fail due to suboptimal definition, but also due to suboptimal qualification, control and supervision.


The quality of products and services has turned into a strategic competitive factor

As a result, many companies are constantly facing new challenges in terms of quality planning and hedging strategy.

Quality can be planned – preventive quality management saves resources, enables cost savings and the targeted achievement of milestones. A good, practical, understandable corporate quality strategy integrates every employee and shapes the “quality mindset”.
