Ans:Quality control is another name we cac geve to testing ,its finding out the defect and correcting them while quality assurance is a process defined in company to prevent that such defecs occur ,but that doesent ensure that if proess is defined then errors will not occur so we do testing also,the difference between the roles is tester detect the errors and QA people looks over the process that is proper documentation and proper flow of sdlc cylce,i hope this will help

Difference between QA and QC is given as below. Hopefully it will clear all ur doubtsQA activities ensure that the process is defined and appropriate. e.g. Methodology and standards development of QA activities. whereas QC activities focus on finding defects in specific deliverables. e.g., are the defined requirements the right requirements.QA is process oriented, Oriented to prevention. whereas QC is product oriented,QC is product oriented. Quality Assurance makes sure you are doing the right things, the right way whereas Quality Control makes sure the results of what you've done are what you expected. QA is scheduled at the beginning phase of an activity where as QC si scheduled at the end phase of an activity.
