Quality inspection are measures aimed at checking, measuring, or testing of one or more product characteristics and to relate the results to the requirements to confirm compliance. This task is usually performed by specialized personnel and does not fall within the responsibility of production workers.
In-line inspection refers to a preventative maintenance examination of pipelines to identify corrosion, cracks and other defects that may result in catastrophic failure of the structure. It is a form of nondestructive examination. In-line inspection may also be known as line inspection.
Our line inspection procedures follow industry standard guidelines and protocols. Our robust machinery is designed for high speed, wide web and booklet inspection, and our camera systems check URNs (unique random numbers) with faultless precision.
Additional inspections should take place during various stages of production. For apparel, inspections should occur at each critical step of the production process, from cutting to assembling to pressing or other finishing procedures. For example, during the cutting phase, each cutting ticket should be randomly inspected to ensure that each part is accurately notched and shades are separated. If fabric is incorrectly cut, the parts cannot be properly assembled.
In-line inspections are important, as quality issues are often re-workable during the production phase and can be fixed before the final product is complete. When quality issues are not corrected during the production process, minor issues in the beginning of production can lead to larger issues in later stages.
Inspection involves measuring, examining and testing products, process and services against specified requirements to determine conformity. An inspection determines if the material or item is in proper quantity and condition. ... In quality control, the role of inspection is to verify and validate the variance data.
Advantage of inspection
Inspections give you the data to quantify trends with equipment problems, as well as to isolate causes. Often, when equipment has a recurring problem, it's due to systematic misuse, and inspections can bring this operational issue to light.
