@Ds26: Does Big Bang turn-on work? Hum... If it's a mature product, it could because most of the components are already well-known. The new features might create problems. Or a replacment part that is assumed to be identical may cause problems. For new, first-generation products, Big Bang is iffy.
I would say quality in a small startup is probably lacking because they don't have the funds to staff a test team. But an organization of about 100 people, whether a division in a big company or whether that is the company, should have the resources to have dedicated quality engineers. I think a large part is the culture of the company. In the old days, HP was known for it's very high quality. HP engineers that left and started up their own companies tended to carry that quality culture with them. Other companies don't have the stringent quality culture.
