1. QA is associated with Assurance & Audit | QC is associated with Control and Inception
2. QA is preventive | QC is Corrective


In Software QA Activities can be :
1. Making and following coding guidelines
2. Making and following design guidelines
3. Doing Unit Testing

In Software QC Activities can be :
1. Doing Testing / Inception
2. Doing Regression Testing.

Good Explanation Saket

1) Please update , Unit Testing can be done by Tester then it can be part of QC ?
2) Code Review will be part of QC ?

Thanks

Unit testing is done by developer only , review of unfinished product is assurance... think like anything which we do to ensure we do not build the defective product is assurance... and once the product is ready and we see is it meeting the specification is control

Kshitij,

I believe Code Review is also part of QA.
The main difference is
Perform Quality Assurance is primarily concerned with overall PROCESS IMPROVEMENT. It is not about inspecting the product for quality or measuring defects. Instead, Performance Quality Assurance is focused on steadily improving the activities and processes undertaken to achieve quality.

Perform Quality Control is the process where each deliverable is INSPECTED, MEASURED, and TESTED. This process makes sure that everything produced meets quality

So based on that Code is not a deliverable Code review is something you are doing in order to get Perfect Deliverable so I believe it is QA only

Saket / Namita correct me if I am wrong
