What is the difference among Testing, QA and QC

Quality Assurance: A set of activities designed to ensure that the development and/or maintenance process is adequate to ensure a system will meet its objectives. E.g are requirements being defined at the proper level of detail.

Quality Control: A set of activities designed to evaluate a developed work product. E.g. are the defined requirements the right requirements.

Testing: The process of executing a system with the intent of finding defects. (Note that the "process of executing a system" includes test planning prior to the execution of the test cases.)
