Quality is the lifeline of a business. We have in place a scientific management system of quality assurance and control. In addition, we have in house a highly qualified and veteran team of QC engineers. Below is the general work process of quality assurance and quality control.
1. Initial Production Inspection (IPI)
Inspection will be carried out at the beginning of production. It aims to prevent defective components so as to ensure quality input for production. The inspection also makes sure the production will have a good start and supplier's given estimated time of delivery(ETD) can be met.
Firstly, we hold supplier's BOM(Bill of Materials) and check all their materials are in good quality in place for production. If a third-party testing is requested(like the FOOD CONTACT test compulsory to all food related wares exporting to France), we work with world famous testing laboratories like TUV, SGS and CMA. Then, we monitor the assembly process and check the first production run. In case of defectives are detected, we report to you and take immediate corrective measures.
2. Online Production Inspection (OPI)
As soon as the first products come off the production lines, we will send designated inspection staff to factory floor checking for any defects or deviations from pre-defined quality parameters. If problems are identified, we will provide advice on the corrective measures to get production back on track.
During Production Inspection will be completed periodically at pre-set periods. If a project is of high complexity or of significantly substantial quantity, we have full time staff ready to station at factory and submit daily reports.
The safest standard inspection procedure are recommended at the following key production stages: < 5% produced, 10-15% produced, 40-50% produced, 75% produced and 90-100%.
3. Packing Inspection
Final product packaging is an important part of the production process. We will oversee the packaging process to ensure all products are safely packaged as per requirements.
Specific packaging integrity testing (drop tests, compression tests, vibration testing etc.) can be arranged with our partner testing facilities on request.
4. Preshipment Inspection (PSI)
Inspection will be carried out ONLY when at least 80% of the order are finished and well packed. We randomly draw samples from the lot according to AQL(Acceptable Quality Level) or your requested standards. Generally, the major items to test are cosmetics, functions and packaging. For example the drop test in terms of packaging.
5. Container Loading Check (CLC)
We check quantities of the goods and conditions of the carrier container. Monitor the whole loading process(from warehouse to container). We seal the lock after loading to finish the inspection.
