6. "Trouble-shooting" or sorting out testing problems:

Problems in testing may be related to any facet of test or laboratory procedure or any of the issues or equipment surrounding these.

One of the advantages of having monitoring programmes is that data from many laboratories are available to support trouble shooting. For example, if only one laboratory reports a particular problem and it is not seen in any other laboratory one might conclude that the problem lies within that laboratory. If several laboratories all have a similar problem using the same batch of the same test one might conclude that the problem lies with the test or with a batch of that test. This can save a lot of effort and money in a testing system.
