Quality is defined as Conformance to Requirements. That is, any product, service, or process that conforms to its requirements is a Quality Product, Service, or Process.
At KA Imaging, ‘Quality’ is based upon Process Management and Improvement Methodology (PM&I). It focuses upon processes and their efficiencies that produce their outcomes in a consistent and a repeatable manner. The process outcomes must meet their agreed upon requirements.
For KA Imaging to function effectively, it has identified and has linked all business processes. The application of a system of processes within an organization, together with the identification and interactions of these processes and their management to produce the desired outcome, can be referred to as the “process approach”. The linking of the processes to produce outcomes is also known as inter-related processes.
KA Imaging deploys a RASUI concept in its approach towards designing and developing products. RASUI is an acronym that stands for ‘Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Usability, and Installability’.
