Quality assurance is the action or process of verification that a requirement in terms of quality is being met. Managing the quality involves planning, establishing a workflow for fulfilling, and systematically monitoring different aspects of a service or activity.

The term quality assurance is sometimes used interchangeably with quality control, another facet of the management process. It describes a system of maintaining standards by testing a sample of the output against the specification.

Quality requirements are established in the form of quality standards and guidelines. [1]

It is a process-oriented approach that facilitates and defines objectives in product design, development, and production. It forms a part of the workflow followed during the development and implementation of a product or service according to the company’s objectives. [2]
