What is Quality Assurance?
Quality assurance (QA) is a systematic process that ensures products, services, or processes meet or exceed established quality standards. It involves activities and techniques aimed at preventing defects, identifying and resolving issues, and improving overall quality throughout the entire lifecycle of a product or service. Quality assurance aims to ensure consistent and reliable performance, customer satisfaction, and compliance with regulatory requirements.
Quality assurance is defined by ISO 9000 as a “part of quality management focused on providing confidence that quality requirements will be fulfilled.” With QA, manufacturers can ensure that customers receive a defect-free product by preventing mistakes at the time of manufacturing. Businesses can improve compliance to standards by monitoring processes and use feedback to improve efficiency and effectiveness.Request an Online Demo
