Quality Control Lead

The primary function of the Quality Control position is to encourage all members of the team to consider reliability in addition to functionality in their designs and work. When teams are rushing through the build season, they will be reminded to pause and focus on how well the work is being done and whether it is likely to survive the rigors of competition. This is not the chief inspector, but the person that helps create an appreciation for the importance of quality work and a reminder to also view the work from that perspective.
