Intro to Quality Control in Manufacturing

Quality control is a critical component of a quality management system that involves making sure all quality requirements are fulfilled. It consists of measuring and inspecting products to ensure they meet the required specifications at the point of production. Quality control standards are typically dictated by quality assurance approaches such as ISO 9001. These approaches outline certain protocols for the production process, and quality control ensures the completion of the required tasks.

In a manufacturing environment, manufacturers can implement various types of quality control, including materials inspection, in-process inspection, and final inspection. By performing these inspections, you can ensure your quality control is on track, which leads to reduced costs, higher efficiency, and a good reputation.
