Using a computer while sitting for extended periods is common. Quality managers must also be able to position self to maintain equipment, including under tables and desks.

The job is normally performed indoors, in a traditional office setting. Extended periods of sitting while using a computer or other devices are common. Occasional travel to vendor sites (10-15%) for audits, inspections, etc., may be required.
