Data Collection helps your team to assess the health of your process. To do so, you have to identify the key quality characteristics you will measure, how you will measure them, and what you will do with the data you collect. Data Collection is nothing more than planning for and obtaining useful information on key quality characteristics produced by your process. However, simply collecting data does not ensure that you will obtain relevant or specific enough data to tell you what is occurring in your process.
The key issue is not: How do we collect data?
Rather, it is: How do we obtain useful data?
AMS will help you in this stage to collect the right data and find the best providers of data sources.
