This is one more article focusing on a certain type of process, this type garment production. It is basically the process of converting fabric into finished garments.
In China, a factory normally produces garments in bulk quantity of a style or design at a time. So our cutting & sewing checklist was designed with this environment in mind.
Taking the process step by step we have drawn up a set of checkpoints that reviews in detail each element from receiving the raw material through to planning and on to packing products and everything in between.
The different stages of the process we cover in this checklist are:
- Material Control
- Design and Patterns
- Production Pattern
- Cutting Preparation
- Cutting and Dispatch
- Production Organization
- In-process QC
- Metal Detection
- Final Inspection
- Packing Products
The objective of this type of audit is to give some assurance to the customer that they will be receiving their product the way they are expecting it, to specification. I already described what the differences are between this type of process audit and the “generic” quality audits all our competitors offer.
Did we forget something important?
