Quality, quality management, and quality control all encompass different aspects and processes within a company: many of which we cover with our IBS America, Inc. blog. We all have an understanding of what makes a quality product, but this definition is as numerous as products being manufactured.

It is noteworthy that some very successful providers of products and services are known for having low quality, yet they are competitive and often have a thriving business portfolio because they understand their market.
Attune to market fluctuations and attentive to the voice of the customer, successful providers make quality decisions cyclically across a time continuum. Increasing quality takes an investment of one or more of the following; time, costs, and/or creativity (which usually involves time and cost).
