This is one of the most frequent questions we receive, and it’s often a hot debate at quality industry events as well.
At the end of the day, inspecting product for quality prior to shipment does the following things:
- Verifies that product specifications are being met and avoids unnecessary reengineering work later
- Confirms important quantity verification
- Checks packaging integrity to avoid costly damage during transit
- Reduces overall quality risks and cost
I am unable to recall a client where the total cost of inspections wasn’t covered by one or more quality issues preventatively called out prior to shipment. The benefits exceed the investment and are a valuable component to the overall quality assurance process.
