Minimum supervision required following commissioning of tool, thereby minimizing the degree of external effort, time and cost that might occurred otherwise. However, culture of regular practicing the tool and properly addressing the identified gaps should be taken into account for galvanizing the effort in positioning effective quality improvement system making full functionality towards optimization.
