Refers to techniques and activities that are deployed to fulfill the requirements for quality. The basic goal of quality control is to ensure that a product, service or process meets the specific requirements and thus are dependable and satisfactory. While the term is often used interchangeably with quality assurance, quality control is a broader term. It is quite possible to have quality control without quality assurance but not vice versa. Sigma Six is a typical example of a quality control method.[1]
