Quality Control & Quality Assurance at Ryton
Whilst Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA) may sound similar they aren't the same. Quality control was originally defined as the maintaining of specific standards by inspecting, sampling, and testing the product at various points along the production of the product. Quality assurance, however, is making the quality of the product the responsibility of everyone and is designing the product to be a quality product (this goes down to details like choosing good suppliers etc).

This is when a small group of people (5 to 10) from the same organisation meet regularly
