What is the difference between Software Quality Assurance (SQA) and Software Quality Control (SQC)?
The difference between the two is as follows:
The processes in the Software Quality Assurance:
1. Software development methodology.
2. Project Management
3. Configuration Management
4. Requirements Development/Management
6. Software Design
7. Testing, etc.
After implementing the processes, the following is done to ensure Quality assurance:
· An analysis is made to find out the Weaknesses.
· Processes are improved only when the weaknesses are worked upon.
The quality is leveled depending on the following popular standards although various other models are present:
2. Six Sigma
3. ISO 9000
In Software Quality Assurance, software is developed by continuously working on weaknesses and removing them to meet the specific requirements.
