Leveraging quality notifications, the quality engineer can capture all problem-related information. Further immediate actions can be captured for documentation purposes. To identify the root cause of the complaint, the quality engineer starts a root cause analysis. After having identified the error and the related root cause, the quality engineer classifies this information using code groups, codes, and free text information.

The quality engineer defines corrective and preventive actions either globally at notification level or per defect. The quality engineer assigns one processor to each action. The action is processed and action processors give feedback per action.

Finally, the quality engineer reviews each action and closes the notification.
