The main differences between a PQR and a WPS

A WPS and PQR are mandatory documents when welds need to comply to a standard.

  • A WPS has the welding parameters explained in the context of instructions to allow for the welder to reproduce the product with a particular quality and standard.

  • A PQR uses these welding parameters as a checklist to see if the standard is met or not.

My understanding is correct or not?
