The Perform Quality Assurance process has four outputs:
■ Organizational process assets updates
■ Change requests
■ Project management plan updates
■ Project document updates

During this process, any recommended corrective actions, whether they are a result of a quality audit or process analysis, should be acted upon immediately. Let's say you're manufacturing parts for one of the deliverables of your project. Obviously, the moment you discover that the parts are not correct, you'd correct the process by calibrating the machine perhaps, or by using different raw materials, to make certain the parts are produced accurately.
