Quality Control (QC)

Definition - What does Quality Control (QC) mean?

Quality control is the set of measures and procedures to follow in order to ensure that the quality of a product is maintained and improved against a set of benchmarks and that any errors encountered are either eliminated or reduced. The focus of quality control is to ensure that the product and product manufacturing are not only consistent but also in line with customer requirements.

Techopedia explains Quality Control (QC)

Quality control is similar to quality assurance. One of the features of quality control is the use of well-defined controls. It brings standardization into the process. Most organizations have a quality control/assurance department that provides the set of standards to be followed for each product. Either an internal team or a third-party team is hired to determine whether the products that are delivered meet these standards. Quality control relies on testing of products, as product inspection gives a clearer picture of the quality of the end product. There are different standards available for quality control.

The quality of a product is often impacted by deviations from target standards and by the high variability around target specifications. Effective quality control should be able to address both these issues. Quality control can help businesses in improving their products in the market along with brand recognition. It also helps in addressing liability concerns, planning and decision making, and meeting customer needs. The effort and finance involved in product delivery can be much improved with the help of quality control.
