Quality Control & Quality Assurance

The main difference is that QA is process oriented and QC is product or software oriented. Testing, therefore is product or software oriented and thus is in the Quality Control domain. Testing for quality isn't assuring quality, it's controlling it. Quality Assurance makes sure you are doing the right things, the right way.

QA/QC is the combination of quality assurance, the process or set of processes used to measure and assure the quality of a software, and quality control, the process of ensuring software and services meet consumer expectations.

The advantage of Quality Assurance is that the costs are reduced because there is less wastage and re-working of faulty products as the product is checked at every stage. It can help improve worker motivation as workers have more ownership and recognition for their work.

Quality control can reduce your inspection costs because you will have a better idea of your processes and more confidence in your company's ability to turn out high-quality goods without error. The data collected during quality control can be used to ensure things are going smoothly.
