Quality assurance (QA) consists of a means of monitoring the software engineering processes and methods used to ensure quality. The methods by which this is accomplished are many and varied, and may include ensuring conformance to one or more standards, such as ISO 9000 or a model such as CMMI.

QA encompasses the entire software development process, which includes processes such as requirements definition, software design, coding, source code control, code reviews, software configuration management, testing, release management, and product integration. QA is organized into goals, commitments, abilities, activities, measurements, and verification.

Importance of Software Testing Quality Assurance :

Quality assurance is the planned and systematic set of activities that ensures that software processes and products conform to requirements, standards, and procedures.

Processes include all of the activities involved in designing, developing, enhancing, and maintaining software.

Products include the software, associated data, its documentation, and all supporting and reporting paperwork.

QA includes the process of assuring that standards and procedures are established and are followed throughout the software development lifecycle.
Standards are the established criteria to which the software products are compared.

Procedures are the established criteria to which the development and control processes are compared.

Compliance with established requirements, standards, and procedures is evaluated through process monitoring, product evaluation, audits, and testing.
