The whole process of industrial production refers to a series of processes from market research, product development and design, product process preparation, raw material procurement, production organization, control, inspection, packaging, and warehousing to sales and service. That is to conceive and produce ideal products, promote products to society, and provide users with use value. The basic method of total quality management is the quality management of the whole process. Through the quality monitoring of the whole process of production, we can ensure the quality of products.

Quality Control & Management in Production Process – How to Achieve Quality of Conformance

The task of quality management in the production process is to realize the quality of conformance and make the products meet the product standards required by the design. After inspection, what meets the standard is qualified, and what does not meet the standard is defective or waste. Product process quality management needs to make full use of data. How to achieve compliance quality?
1. Adhere to organizing production according to standards
Standardization is an important prerequisite for quality management and the need to realize management standardization. Enterprise standards are divided into technical standards and management standards. Technical standards are mainly divided into raw and auxiliary material standards, process tooling standards, semi-finished product standards, finished product standards, packaging standards, inspection standards, etc. It is to form this line along with the product, control the quality of materials input into each process, and check and set cards layer by layer so that the production process is under control. In the technical standard system, each standard is carried out with the product standard as the core, in order to achieve the standard service of finished products.

Management standard is to standardize people’s behavior, the relationship between people and things, and to improve work quality and ensure product quality. It includes product process specification, operation specification, and economic responsibility system. The degree of enterprise standardization reflects the level of enterprise management. To ensure product quality, enterprises must first establish and improve various technical standards and management standards and strive for support. Second, we should strictly implement the standards, standardize the quality of materials and people’s work in the production process, conduct strict assessments, and honor rewards and punishments. Third, we should constantly revise and improve the standards, implement the new standards and ensure the progressiveness of the standards.

2. Strengthen the quality inspection mechanism
Quality inspection
plays the following functions in the production process: first, the function of guarantee, that is, the function of the check. Through the inspection of raw materials and semi-finished products, identify, sort, and eliminate unqualified products, and decide whether to accept the product or batch of products. Ensure that unqualified raw materials are not put into production, unqualified semi-finished products are not transferred to the next process, and unqualified products are not delivered; Second, the function of prevention. The information and data obtained through quality inspection provide the basis for control, finding out the causes of quality problems, eliminating them in time, and preventing or reducing the generation of nonconforming products; Third, the function of reporting. The quality inspection department shall timely report the quality information and quality problems to the factory director or relevant superior departments, so as to provide necessary quality information for improving quality and strengthening management.

To improve quality inspection, first, we need to establish and improve quality inspection institutions, equipped with quality inspection personnel, equipment, and facilities that can meet the needs of production; Second, we should establish and improve the quality inspection system. From the entry of raw materials to the delivery of finished products, we should check at all levels, make original records, clarify the responsibilities of production workers and inspectors, and implement quality tracking. At the same time, the functions of production workers and inspectors should be closely combined. Inspectors should not only be responsible for quality inspection but also guide production workers. The products produced by themselves should be inspected first, and the combination of self-inspection, mutual inspection, and special inspection should be implemented; Third, we should establish the authority of quality inspection institutions. The quality inspection organization must be under the direct leadership of the factory director, and no department or personnel can intervene. Unqualified raw materials confirmed by the quality inspection department are not allowed to enter the factory, unqualified semi-finished products cannot flow to the next process, and unqualified products are not allowed to leave the factory.

3. Implement quality veto
The quality of products depends on the quality of work, and the quality of work is mainly a human problem. Therefore, how to tap people’s positive factors and improving the quality management mechanism and restraint mechanism is an important link in the quality work.

A quality responsibility system or economic responsibility system with quality as the core is an important means to improve people’s work quality. The core of the quality responsibility system is the combination of responsibility. As the quality management of the production process, we should first analyze the quality functions of each post and personnel, that is, clarify their respective responsibilities and work standards on quality issues. Secondly, we should closely link the product quality of post personnel with economic interests and honor rewards and punishments. The long-term winner will be given a heavy reward. If the quality loss is caused by dereliction of duty, compensation or other sanctions will be imposed in addition to salary. In addition, in order to highlight the importance of quality management, a quality veto should be implemented. That is to take the quality index as a hard index for assessing cadres and workers. No matter how well other work is done, as long as there is a problem with quality, one vote veto will be implemented in the selection of advanced, promotion, and other honor projects.

4. Grasp the key factors affecting product quality and set up quality management (control) points
The meaning of a quality management point (control point) is to strengthen the management of the special management measures and methods taken by the production and manufacturing site for the quality characteristics, key parts, and main factors that need to be controlled in a certain period of time and under certain conditions, so as to make the factory in a good control state and ensure the specified quality requirements. To strengthen the management, professional managers need to make a systematic analysis of the whole enterprise, find out the key parts and weaknesses, and control them.

5. Rational use of quality management tools and quality management software
Quality is the life of an enterprise, the display of the overall quality of an enterprise, and the embodiment of the comprehensive strength of an enterprise. With the progress of human society and the improvement of people’s living standards, customers have higher and higher requirements for product quality. Therefore, if enterprises want to develop stably for a long time, they must carry out production around the core of quality. To do a good job of quality management, they must apply quality management tools and quality management software.
