What is Quality Control : Quality control (QC) is a procedure or set of procedures intended to ensure that a manufactured product or performed service adheres to a defined set of quality criteria or meets the requirements of the client or customer. QC is similar to, but not identical with, quality assurance. While QA refers to the confirmation that specified requirements have been met by a product or service, QC refers to the actual inspection of these elements.

QA is sometimes expressed together with QC as a single expression: quality assurance and control (QA/QC).

 To standardize production and to maintain a quick and effective reaction to quality issues, these controls play a major role. It limits the room for error, especially in manufacturing. 

In order to deliver a good quality product, It is required to process Quality Checks before completing production. The product must be passed through various quality checks at different stages of production. 

Odoo Quality Module : Odoo v15 provides a quality module that consists of Control Points, Checks, and Alerts that enrich product quality. The Odoo 15 Quality module focuses on Quality checks, Alerts, teams, Products variants, and Control Points. You can manage all these activities in a single system using the Odoo 15 Quality module.

In this blog we will discuss complete details about the Quality Management module of Odoo.
