Quality Control or Quality Assurance ?

Postby asimali Wed Feb 28, 2018 5:56 pm

Hi Manish ,

For the below question since the deliverable is not yet ready so i assumed i am in execution process group and selected option B as quality assurance . But when reviewing the answers the correct option was A i.e. Quality Control.
Please can you advise me on this.


You are in the middle of your project and working on a deliverable which is 90% completed. It is time for the yearly audit. A team of auditors are about to come and verify if you are following the process as defined or not. However, as the deliverable is about to be completed, you check it and measure all dimensions to find any possible dimensional defects. What process is this?

(a) Control quality
(b) Perform quality assurance
(c) Plan quality management
(d) Control scope

In my opinion, This is Perform Control Quality as PM is part of project team and is doing an inspection. The auditors have not yet done the audit so it is not perform Quality Assurance.

its QC

Bcz question says " A team of auditors are about to come and verify".

QA takes input from QC process like quality control measurements.
QA is checking process
QC is checking deliverables
