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

Quality assurance is process oriented and focuses on defect prevention, while quality control is product oriented and focuses on defect identification.[1][2]
