What is Quality Inspection?
Quality Inspection is an activity of checking, measuring, or testing one or more product or service characteristics and comparing the results with the specific requirements to confirm compliance. An efficient inspection process standardizes quality, eliminates paper documents, and increases efficiencies on the floor.
One of the fundamental pillars of achieving continuous improvement is the quality inspection process. Depending upon where the product is in the manufacturing lifecycle, criteria-based inspection plans enable meeting specific regulatory requirements and workflows. Online visibility and real-time monitoring of incoming parts, raw materials, and sub-units are important for successful inspections.
An effective quality management solution can streamline inspection-related processes within your organization such as receiving, in-process, shipment, and product returns, and thus deliver a unified view of inspection criteria and results to the company personnel.
