Quality Assurance and Quality Control are systems that work to eliminate mistakes and defects in manufactured products as well prevent products with defects from being released for use. Although the two terms are oftentimes used interchangeably, they do in fact have different meanings. Quality assurance is process-based and focuses on the prevention of quality and safety hazards. Quality control is product-based and focuses on identifying defects within those products. Both processes are critical in terms of maintaining standards and compliance.
