Preventive vs. Reactive Quality Approach in the Automotive Industry

Probably each Quality Specialist will tell you that the preventive quality assurance approach is  the only one that is right. Yes, but… Even if the theory says so, in real life project and quality teams deal with organizational limits in preventive approach (e.g. an expensive poka-yoke) or technical limits of the production.
