A programme of simplification is usually initiated because the product line has become overextended through the development of an excessive number of unrelated products or the production of too many colors, sizes or other varieties. This situation may arise because management did not give sufficient attention to the product line when new varieties were added or because the conditions have changed since the varieties were first placed in the market.
Diversification can takes place in two different ways:
Diversification in depth
Diversification of the existing product lines means adding another product to the existing product line e.g. Godrej Company adding a new washing machine to its existing product line of consumer durables.

Quality control (QC) is a procedure or set of procedures intended to ensure that a manufactured product or performed service adheres to a defined set of quality criteria or meets the requirements of the client or customer.
Under traditional quality control, inspection of products and services (checking to make sure that what's being produced is meeting the required standard) takes place during and at the end of the operations process
