Quality Control
Quality Control is a way of preventing mistakes or defects in products and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers. Quality control is applied to physical products in pre-production to verify what will be made meets specifications and requirements, and during production by validating samples that meet specified quality controls..

Quality Control refers to administrative and procedural activities implemented in a quality system so that requirements and goals for a product, service or activity will be fulfilled. (Instructor: Greg McCreary, Operations Manager, Standard Aero)
Project Cost Management
Cost Management is a method that uses technology to measure cost and productivity through the full life cycle of enterprise level projects. Cost management encompasses several specific functions of project management including estimating, job controls, field data collection, scheduling, accounting and design.

Beginning with estimating, a vital tool in cost management, actual historical data is used to accurately plan all aspects of the project. As the project continues, job control uses data from the estimate with the information reported from the field to measure the cost and production in the project. From project initiation to completion, project cost management has an objective to simplify and cheapen the project experience. (Instructor: Greg McCreary, formerly Operation Manager Standard Aero)
