    How to conduct quality assurance inspections and how to avoid product recalls.

    Marian Wang

    Candy sales fell 14% in the summer of 2006 due to a widespread salmonella outbreak that lost a British confectionery company £20 million. In 2007, a recall of 60 million cans of dog food shook the pet food market in the United States. In the early months of 2019, a car manufacturer was forced to recall 44,000 vehicles because of carbon dioxide levels that were not approved. For a kitchen equipment business, returning 15,000 defective microwaves was just the latest in an ongoing series of costly recalls due to defective products.

    Even though well-established firms often have the financial wherewithal to recover from short-term setbacks like product recalls, there’s always the possibility that poor news might be the death knell for even the most powerful of brands. Preemptive quality control checks may have saved millions of goods and millions of dollars in earnings if the companies had paid a fraction of these expenditures.

    The best way to avoid problems is to take steps to prevent them in the first place.

    To avoid this, it is necessary to mediate and monitor the production process with quality control inspections from start to end, as well as watching the final packaging and shipping preparations. To better understand quality control in manufacturing, we’ll look at the many methods of inspection.

    Quality Control Services Inspection Types: What Are They?
    To verify that the production process and products fulfill the agreed-upon criteria, quality control professionals visit plants on behalf of clients.

    It’s important to have quality control services in place to make sure that your products satisfy your standards and to keep an eye on the supply chain’s impact on the quality of your products.

    It is possible to use the internationally recognized statistical sampling procedure ANSI/ASQC Z1.4 (ISO 2859-1) in order to determine the percentage of a batch of products that must be examined for quality in order to represent the overall quality of the batch, commonly known as the Acceptable Quality Limit (AQL) (AQL).

    Checklists should be provided to inspectors by the manufacturer or supplier in order to establish the acceptable quality tolerance level for faults or non-conformity.

    Identifying and Correcting Errors
    Products (units) that do not meet the intended purpose of the product are marked during the factory inspection process to look for flaws. ANSI/ASQ A3534-2-1993 checklists are used by on-site quality control inspectors to assign a severity rating to any faulty units.

    Illustrations of Flaws
    A garment’s buttonhole and button do not line up.
    Unsatisfactory product or component of a product
    Mistakes in the use of incorrect or illegal materials
    Making a Case for Non-Compliance

    It is determined whether a finished product (unit) has met the customer’s specifications via factory inspection for non-conformity. The level of severity of any features that do not match established norms is noted on inspected units.

    Non-Compliance with Specifications
    Wrong measurements.
    Dimensions do not correspond to industry standards.
    Power input/output that is not appropriate for the target market

    According to the WHO Food Code, food inspections are conducted on processed and perishable goods (Codex Alimentarius).
