The Ministry of Defence uses a range of contractual milestones to assess and monitor the quality of Ajax vehicles before delivery to the Army. The Defence Quality Assurance Field Force provides a continual assessment of the General Dynamics’ Quality System and compliance with contractual requirements and legislation, seeking to identify opportunities for continuous improvement.
