Quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) - Two terms that have many interpretations because of the multiple definitions for the words assurance and control. For example, assurance can mean the act of giving confidence, the state of being certain or the act of making certain; control can mean an evaluation to indicate needed corrective responses, the act of guiding or the state of a process in which the variability is attributable to a constant system of chance causes. (For a detailed discussion on the multiple definitions, see ANSI/ISO/ASQ A3534-2, Statistics ”Vocabulary and Symbols ”Statistical Quality Control.) One definition of quality assurance is: all the planned and systematic activities implemented within the quality system that can be demonstrated to provide confidence that a product or service will fulfill requirements for quality. One definition for quality control is: the operational techniques and activities used to fulfill requirements for quality. Often, however, quality assurance and quality control are used interchangeably, referring to the actions performed to ensure the quality of a product, service or process.

Quality Control - Also called statistical quality control. The managerial process during which actual process performance is evaluated and actions are taken on unusual performance.

It is a process to ensure whether a product meets predefined standards and requisite action taken if the standards are not met.

Quality Control measures both products and processes for conformance to quality requirements (including both the specific requirements prescribed by the product specification, and the more general requirements prescribed by Quality Assurance); identifies acceptable limits for significant Quality Attributes; identifies whether products and processes fall within those limits (conform to requirements) or fall outside them (exhibit defects); and reports accordingly. Correction of product failures generally lies outside the ambit of Quality Control; correction of process failures may or may not be included.
