Quality Assurance


What are Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC)?

  • Quality Assurance, or QA for short, is the systematic monitoring and evaluation of the various aspects of a project to maximize the probability that minimum standards of quality are being attained [in the construction] process.
  • Quality Control, or QC for short, emphasizes testing to uncover products which do not meet specifications (i.e., do not meet the minimum level of quality).

— [Wikipedia, abridged]

Quality, Budget, and Schedule are all important project factors which must be in balance, but quality is often sacrificed unnecessarily. With proper planning, vigilance, and oversight, quality can be integrated into all aspects of a project.

Quality Must Be Planned & Measured

Compass AudioVisual, LLC is built upon a quality philosophy, and therefore, understands that quality must be planned at the beginning of a project, indeed throughout the project, then measured, with any appropriate corrective action then taken, throughout the project. The following diagram shows a simplified version of how Compass AudioVisual, LLC achieves quality in every project:

Quality Where?

Here are just few examples of where quality can be planned and measured within a project:

  • Selected Systems Contractor
  • Selected Equipment
  • Equipment Setup & Performance
  • Equipment Cabling
  • Documentation
  • System Function

Compass AudioVisual, LLC can implement quality into your project by overseeing the selection of a competent systems contractor and quality equipment, ensuring that the equipment is setup and interconnected (cabled) properly and cleanly, and finally ensuring the delivery of a complete and accurate documentation package. These serve as just a few examples of how Compass AudioVisual, LLC can ensure your project is of the highest quality.
