What is the QC/QA flowchart example template?
Brand equity is a difficult thing to gain and an easy thing to destroy. And much of your brand equity comes from how people perceive the quality of your product. For instance, a brand that produces one awful car for every five stellar cars is going to be perceived as an untrustworthy brand. That’s where quality control and quality assurance come into play: you need processes for both.
QA (quality assurance) and QC (quality control) are related, but they differ in their approaches to ensuring that your company consistently delivers quality products. QA is proactive and process-oriented and includes things like audits, training, and documentation. QC is reactive and product-oriented. It includes things like inspections, testing, sampling, and customer feedback. This flowchart helps you visualize where the two cross over, so you can successfully document both.
