When we want to ensure the quality of a cargo, there are many tools that we can use in terms of human capital; as quality inspectors, personal visits, hire third-party QC specialists such as IBMH, and even trust the company staff.
However, all these resources can fail if they do not have a checklist. To better explain how we can help you improve your experience of buying furniture hardware in China, we will tell you about the importance of a checklist in quality control.
What role does the checklist play in the inspection?
Regardless of the equipment or method of quality control you use, a checklist is the only way to ensure that no detail is overlooked during the inspection. The importance of covering every detail of the standards lies in that only when evaluating all aspects of the product you can get a real and concise quality report that truly fits your needs. The most common cause of incorrect quality reports is the review failure.
Importance of the checklist
When performing a quality control inspection, it is necessary to take into account certain factors that are very important during the inspection process and that can only be reliable based on the checklist:
- AQL sampling
- Product check
- Classification of defects
- Checking the packaging
- Product testing on site.
- The checklist is very important in AQL standards sampling since it indicates the reference of the sample size. This process must be risky to be considered reliable and for you to avoid possible scams in the quality of the cargo.
