Conclusions:
Our purpose to identify the challenges with quality assurance in this specific context has been reached. We have found six areas of challenge that can be divided into two groups. The first group consists of the challenges in relation to create the quality assurance system and the second of a more fundamental character with challenges that must be undertaken to create the right premises for the first group. The six areas of challenge include defining quality, measure quality, create a quality assurance system, finding the proper level of control, establish clear communication and make sure that all involved parties have the right set of competence.
