Quality control inspection checklist. It is also sometimes called a production inspection checklist and is often used for checking the quality of your work. By using this manufacturing qc checklist, you can make sure that everything in your production process is as good or better than it can be. You can look at every stage of the workflow, from planning to delivery and see how things are progressing. You will also be able to draw up a proper QA list of everything that will be checked off during each stage of the production process, so that you have a complete picture of how far along you are in your production turnaround. There should always be an “unnesting” step in your workflow where all the parts are completed and ready for testing before they are sent off to their final destination. And like any good checklist, it will help you spot problems early on and fix them before they become big problems down the road.
It’s not just a “checklist” that someone else wrote out, it is the basis of a critical quality check. If a product is being produced as advertised, it should adhere to specific standards to ensure customers are getting a fully functioning product.
Let's say, for example, we have an industrial automation system which will automate many different tasks. This system is designed to manage the lights, monitoring temperatures and humidity levels. The product is sold to have associated benefits of automation. So, a customer would brighter lights in the morning and dimmer lights when they are less needed. If the system incorrectly does the opposite of what's intended, a customer could get very frustrated. If the directions are difficult to understand, the customer may make a mistake setting it up, thinking that the product doesn't function as intended. If a customer needs to fix your product just to get it started, you will then have a frustrated customer sharing negative comments about your product, causing fewer sales and increased returns.
It is important to make sure that there are no errors or omissions when customers build our automated systems:
For quality control inspections in this example, these items would be important:
It would impossible for us to test every possible scenario with every possible function in every installed system. Even if it were possible, a quality inspector would only select approximately half to test. Having a method of identifying standard issues with our products would be the ideal scenario. That way, the manufacturer can resolve any issues before final production. To perform this optimally requires a good knowledge of software development practices:
This would be considered the early stage in our product development process so this isn’t yet part of our final product,
There is a common myth about quality control and inspectors. Many companies think that if they hire someone to do inspections, then inspectors will make sure that everything is perfect. In reality, there are two types of quality control:
Inspectors should be able to do both equally well. The most important thing is to hire an manufacturing inspector who has the right skills to be able to do the qc inspection with precision. They also need to understand how to communicate with the customer.
Here's a basic quality control checklist to make sure you're delivering a product free of defects.
