A much misinterpreted and sometimes maligned area, Quality Assurance is more than just testing, it is concerned with the quality of a project as a whole.
While test engineering focuses on driving quality with test automation, Quality Assurance is about ensuring quality in the longer path of requirements through to deployment.
Test automation has a strong place on a project, covering as it does acceptance tests and non-functional requirements such a performance, accessibility and security.
Quality Assurance ensures this work is relevant, and remains relevant, and should be part of the test engineering mindset.

My knowledge is based on years of experience with different challenges, that emerges from company culture, team dynamics and/or technical.
