The duration of any task depends on the number of tests to be performed and the type of equipment used. For example, if you want your product to be tested by an independent third-party lab, where all sorts of complex chemical tests will be performed over several weeks, it will take longer than if someone in your company conducts a quick visual inspection using only their eyesight. The time it takes to complete the quality assurance process depends on many factors, including:
- The size of the team working on it.
- The number of products being tested.
- How closely related they are to each other.
- How large they are.
- What environment they are being tested in.
