In setting up a QA workflow – or any other type of workflow - one tries to make processing faster, better and more efficient. As we are often dealing with vulnerable originals, work on those documents can only be automated to a certain extent, but within the scope for automation, all opportunities should be used. Based on the example of the Netherlands large digitization program Metamorfoze (specifically the Archives and Collections section) this paper will give an example on how to achieve such optimum automation for QA control on data-integrity and will try to answer key questions on automation as they are the starting point for a better QA-workflow.
