Quality Control


Definition: Quality Control is a process by which a certain level of quality of products as an end result of production is examined and tested to uncover defects and report those to management who make the decision to allow or deny product release.
The basic goal of the QC process is to ensure that the products or services that are provided meet specific requirements and characteristics, such as being dependable, satisfactory, safe and sound.
QC must not be confused with quality assurance, which examines the processes that lead to the end result. QC is one part of quality management.
