Supply chain management begins from supplier audit, our approval of your draft purchase order and all other official documents (like RoHS, CE and EMC certificates/reports), to Initial Production Inspection, Online Production Inspection, Packing Inspection, Pre-shipment Inspection, Container Loading Inspection, Document Processing.
We are your trusted information hub between you and your supplier. Our systematic order management can make sure all information flows flawlessly and timely between you and your suppliers. With us, the supplier's voice can be fully heard. With us, all your requirements can be accurately understood and implemented. Work with us, you can free yourself from a lot of pains due to information asymmetry or cultural difference, making your whole supply chain management efficient and cost effective.
1. Supplier Audit
Supplier audit includes qualifying, monitoring and auditing suppliers. The 2 most prominent jobs of our supplier management are factory audit and social audit. Both audits can be customized according to your request or international standards like ISO9001 and SA8000.
2. Purchase Order Approval
We double check your draft order to make sure every detail is correctly spelled out and your supplier fully understood every details. Then, we pass your official purchase order to your supplier, and solicit their signed proforma invoice and committed production plan. We could alsp help both you and your supplier to check payment documents like L/C (Letter of Credit).
3. 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.
4. 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%.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. Documents Processing
We check validity and completeness of product related documents (like RoHS, CE and EMC certificates/reports). Other documents include shipping documents(like bill of loading, certificate of origin), and the other files you may request.
