A necessary first step before identifying improvement goals and establishing priorities is knowing where you are.

AQI offers a variety of assessments to benchmark your company and help identify opportunities for improvement. These include but are not limited to:

Six Sigma Program Assessment: AQI uses a proprietary method developed by its founders to assess the overall health of your Six Sigma program by examining several program attributes via personnel interviews and examination of actual objective evidence to provide an overall health rating and specific list of improvement opportunities. Further, AQI can help with executing the improvements, improving the bottom-line impact of your Six Sigma program.

Cost of Quality (CoQ) Assessment: AQI uses a rigorous method to perform an in-depth Cost of Quality assessment of your organization and provide an overall assessment of whether your organization is reactive and operating in a “fire-fighting” mode, or is being proactive in addressing quality problems and customer satisfaction issues. This remarkably insightful assessment can serve as a critical catalyst in arresting a declining trend or flailing operations, and initiating a turnaround.

ISO 9000 (for Software) Gap Assessment:  AQI's founder, author of the bestseller "ISO 9001:2000 Achieving Compliance and Continuous Improvement in Software Development Companie"s, ASQ Quality Press, has led the development of AQI's proprietary ISO 9000 Gap Assessment tool for Software/IT companies. This is an invaluable tool for companies to assess the readiness of their Quality Management System to pass a formal ISO 9000 registration audit

AQI also conducts and adminsters formal CMMI Scampi appraisals (for certifying maturity of software development organizations), TL9000 audits (telecommunications) and AS9100 audits (aerospace)
