Software quality control

Software quality control

Software Quality Control (also known as Verification and Validation) consists of a means of controlling the quality of software engineering products. It does this by means of tests of the software system. These tests can be unit tests, integration tests, or system tests. It also includes the formal proof of individual pieces of code, and the review of documents and code.

It is distinct from software quality assurance which includes audits of the quality management system against a standard. Whereas software quality control is a control of products, software quality assurance is a control of processes.
