Quality Control (QC) is a process aimed to check the current product quality and:
->Verify the functionality compliance with specifications.
->Verify the documentation compliance with requirements for its creation, content, and format.
->Review the code to verify its compliance with coding standards, architectural documentation, safety, etc.

Quality Assurance (QA) is a set of activities covering all tech stages of the SDL, production, and usage to ensure end-product quality.
