Task Order Information
Quality Assurance Program
Fathom 4 employs a quality assurance program to ensure the highest level of quality in our deliverables and work processes. In addition to developing a Quality Assurance Plan specific to each project, Fathom 4 implements the following management approaches to guarantee repeatable, desired results:
- Performance and Metrics Analysis. Through proper planning, the technical project management team will always establish the initial project metrics and ensure the customer is in agreement. Fathom 4 personnel then determine the most efficient and automated process to monitor and compile the data. The data is then analyzed at regular intervals for continuous improvement initiatives. Once an improvement event has been deemed necessary, the team develops a plan to implement the event with not only the expected results, but the steps to achieve ‘buy-in’ from the actual workforce. The implementation will be further monitored and analyzed to determine if the proposed return on investment is being achieved.
- Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Methodology. Both Fathom 4 owners are certified LSS Green Belts, and encourage LSS methods to be employed wherever possible to continually improve our processes and procedures. An example: Early in 2013, Fathom 4 employed Six Sigma Kaizen events to gather change management data for incorporation into a Navy Command’s Configuration Management (CM) Plan. We performed identical Kaizen events for their N53, N54, and N6 Department personnel, efficiently gathering the “standard change” events in use across the command, and capturing them for insertion into the CM Plan. The results of these Kaizen were similar and consistent, due to the repeatable process used to gather them. The CM plan was approved for release and is now an active Command Instruction.
