If any of the parts or products are not up to the high standards needed by the company and customer then they will be rejected.
As part of this process the parts or products that do not make it past quality control will have to have investigations conducted to see if there is a way to improve on the situation. A major part of any QC job is to identify key areas where quality can be improved upon and implementing the changes.

A quality analyst is responsible for analysing and interpreting statistics concerned with the quality control of the products and materials in the work place. QA often have to work shift work if the work place is in production 24 hours a day to ensure that quality control is still maintained during night time hours.
