HQTS Quality Control

Quality Control Inspections

Product Inspections

HQTS quality control inspections verify product quality and quantity to predetermined specifications.

The decrease in product life cycles and time-to-market increases the challenge to deliver quality products in a timely manner. When your product fails to meet your quality specifications for market acceptance, the result can be loss of good will, product and revenues, delayed shipments, wasted materials, and the potential risk of a product recall.

Quality Control Inspections Procedure

Typical quality control inspections include four primary steps. Depending on the product, your experience with the supplier, and other factors, any one, or all of these, may apply to your needs.

Pre-production Inspections (PPI)

Prior to production, our quality control inspection of raw materials and components will confirm whether these meet your specifications and are available in quantities sufficient to meet the production schedule. This is a useful service where you have had issues with materials and/or component replacements, or you are working with a new supplier and many outsourced components and materials are required during production.

During Production Inspections (DPI)

During production, the products are inspected to verify that quality requirements and specifications are being met. This process is useful in cases of repeated defects in production. It can help identify where in the process the problem occurs and provide objective input for solutions to resolve the production issues.

Pre-Shipment Inspections (PSI)

After production is completed, a pre shipment inspection can be done to verify that the goods being shipped have been manufactured according to your requirements. This is the most common service ordered, and works well with suppliers you have previous experience with.

Piece by Piece Inspections (or Sorting Inspection)

Piece by Piece Inspection can be carried out as a pre or post packaging inspection. A piece by piece inspection is performed on every item to evaluate general appearance, workmanship, function, safety and etc. as specified by you.

Container Loading Inspections (LS)

Container Loading Inspection guarantees HQTS technical staff are monitoring the entire loading process. We check that your order is complete and securely loaded into the container before shipment. This is the final opportunity to confirm compliance with your requirements in terms of quantity, assortment, and packaging.
