Quality Assurance Specialist

Quality Assurance Specialists identify quality problems in solar component production and recommend and implement solutions.

As part of the clean energy economy, Quality Assurance Specialists conduct routine and non-routine analyses of in-process materials, raw materials, environmental samples, or finished solar components and interpret test results, compare them to established specifications and control limits, and make recommendations on the appropriateness of data for release. Quality Assurance Specialists also write technical reports or documentation such as deviation reports, testing protocols, and trend analyses; evaluate analytical methods and inspection procedures to determine how they might be improved; and manage internal, third-party, and customer audits. Additionally, Quality Assurance Specialists monitor production operations and equipment to ensure conformance to specifications and make process or assembly adjustments.
