Inspections are vital for products to maintain top-tier quality. Inspectors from VERGER Group conduct a ‘During Production Inspection’ when 20%-70% of the manufacturing is complete. The During Production Inspection’s aim is to ensure the manufactured products are on par with excellence and on point with the requirements and specifications. This blog embarks on a journey through the world of manufacturing, delving into the critical realm of inspections. Every stage of the manufacturing process, from raw materials to finished goods, experiences the benefits of inspection. Through proactive measures like quality control inspections and manufacturing inspections, industries ensure the maintenance of quality. In this discussion, we will look at the importance of production inspections and how these meticulous assessments can help to uphold standards, increase efficiency, and improve overall product integrity. So buckle up as we navigate the complexities of quality inspection in the manufacturing landscape.
What is During Production Inspection?
The ‘During Production Inspection’ happens continuously during the whole manufacturing process. This is performed to identify any issues before they escalate. Furthermore, this process entails inspecting components and assessing them for defects. Inspectors thoroughly examine materials, dimensions, and compliances using advanced precision tools. Moreover, during production inspection is also conducted to check for consistency, allowing for early deviations to be addressed if necessary. This approach helps in reducing risks, improves stakeholder collaboration, and ensures top-notch quality for the products.
What are the Benefits of During Production Inspection?
There are five benefits of During production inspection
Early Issue Detection
If the product contains defects or discrepancies, inspectors identify them at the early stage of this process. This approach allows for prompt correction, reducing the possibility of rework and delays.
Inspectors check products if they meet quality standards through meticulous procedures. This helps them ensure quality levels. Moreover, it protects the reputation of both manufacturers and products.
Detecting issues during the manufacturing process decreases the cost by resolving the issues in the early stages of production. This low-cost method optimizes resource allocation, streamlines operations, and lowers overall production costs.
If an issue pops up during the inspection, it is rectified and the process runs more smoothly. By doing this, we ensure that we meet quality standards, and avoid any further issues for the same making the process more streamlined and efficient.
Collaboration Among Stakeholders
Regular inspection encourages collaboration among manufacturers, suppliers, and clients. Transparent communication about inspection results garners trust and builds relationships throughout the supply chain.
‘During Production Inspection’ Checklist by VERGER
VERGER Group conducts a thorough, extensive, and technical inspection during this process. After the discussion with the factory’s management, the VERGER team reaches the site for inspection. Furthermore, we follow standard procedures. VERGER’s inspection checklist consists of:
Checking the Status of Production
VERGER team keeps a count of semi-finished, finished, and packed products. The involved parties discuss and document the estimated time for manufacturing completion. The supply chain’s ability is investigated if it can manufacture the number of ordered goods.
Checking Product Specifications
We inspect products based on a variety of parameters such as their dimensions (length, width, height, weight, and so on). We do the raw material inspection by doing the quality inspection of the materials, and manufacturing inspection. Moreover, this is done to have a successful quality control inspection done so that it can benefit all parties.
Checking for Consistency in Design Patterns and Colors
Inspectors examine semi-finished and finished items to ensure consistency in design patterns and colors. The appearance, overall feel, and critical design requirements of the products are all tested.
Unit packing, outer and inner packing, carton dimensions and weights, barcodes and labels, packaging materials, and so on are all inspected.
Supply Chain Reaction
Inspectors test and check the production line for any faults while it’s running.
