QUESTION
What is the difference between Draft and Production Quality?

ANSWER
Production Quality renders better reflections, OmniShadows, anti-aliasing, glass as well as volumetric effects such as Volumetric Sunlight and Volume Clouds etc.

Some effects must be in use (added to the Location (Viewpoint)), in order for Production Quality results to be noticeable.  For example Volumetric Sunlight, or by adding a Cloud Effect and turning on High Quality Clouds.

In Draft Quality, some of those elements are scaled down and others are disabled entirely.

Draft Quality renders much faster, so if you're happy with the results, then use that setting.
