Quality Control

Quality control refers to the technical process that gathers, examines, analyze & report the progress of the project & conformance with the performance requirements.

The steps involved in quality control process are:

  1. Determine what parameter is to be controlled.
  2. Establish its criticality and whether you need to control before, during or after results are produced.
  3. Establish a specification for the parameter to be controlled which provides limits of acceptability and units of measure.
  4. Produce plans for controls which specify the means by which the characteristics will be achieved and variation detected and removed.
  5. Organize resources to implement the plans for quality control.
  6. Install a sensor at an appropriate point in the process to sense variance from specification.
  7. Collect and transmit data to a place for analysis.
  8. Verify the results and diagnose the cause of variance.
  9. Propose remedies and decide on the action needed to restore the status quo.
  10. Take the agreed action and check that the variance has been corrected.


Advantages include better products and services ultimately establishing a good reputation for a company and higher revenue from having more satisfied customers.


Disadvantages include needing more man power/operations to maintain quality control and adding more time to the initial process.
