Glossary » quality inspection

quality inspection

reviewing a user interface for its conformance to style guidelines and specifications, especially with regard to required functionality and robustness (frequency of system errors) because these have a dramatic effect on usability. The purpose of a quality inspection is to make sure that an interface is engineered (built) up to the standards of the design. It is usually performed toward the end of a production cycle, either just before or during alpha testing of a product, as well as just before final release.

QA = quality assurance
QC = quality control
