What Does Quality Control Entail?

The quality control process begins with establishing quality standards that products and services must meet. These standards may be based on internal guidelines, customer requirements, or industry and regulatory standards. Subsequently, inspection and testing procedures are implemented at various stages of production to measure whether the products meet these standards. Deviations from quality standards are promptly addressed to make the necessary adjustments or repairs.
