  Quality control - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quality Assurance has developed a good deal during the last 80-90 years (in about 20 year intervals) from its inception to the current state of the art.
These full time inspectors were the real beginning of inspection quality control; and this was the beginning of large inspection organizations of the 1920s and 1930s, which were separately organized from production and big enough to be headed by superintendents.
In space exploration, victories or failures of quality control produce dramatic results- either the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster or the victory of the Mars Exploration Rovers after a high failure rate of probes to that planet.

In engineering, quality control (QC) is a management function that regulates the quality of raw materials, assemblies, products and components; services related to production; and management, production, and inspection processes.
Many organizations use statistical process control to bring the organization to Six Sigma levels of quality.
In a six sigma organization, every item that creates customer value or disasstisfaction is controlled to assure that the total number of failures are beyond the sixth sigma of likelihood in a normal distribution of customers - setting a standard for failure of fewer than four parts in one million.

 Wikipedia founder admits to serious quality problems | The Register
Criticism of the project from within the inner sanctum has been very rare so far, although fellow co-founder Larry Sanger, who is no longer associated with the project, pleaded with the management to improve its content by befriending, and not alienating, established sources of expertise.
Something that aspires to be a reference work ought to be judged by the quality of the worst entry, he said, in response to the clock-stopped, right-time defense of the project, not by the fact it's got some good articles.
I would argue, in fact, that the overall quality of an encyclopedia is best judged by its weakest entries rather than its best.

 SuperLinux Encyclopedia - Quality Control, Revision Control
Rant on "Quality Assurance": QA is a con-man's term which should only be used under protest.
First, "quality" is a term which, like "culture" should not have an assumed prefix of "high-".
I recognize that some open software is widely enough used that a high percentage of bugs are eventually found, but modifications of that code and less widely used code will have bugs that wouldn't exist if QC was given more attention.
