  FACTORY ASSESSMENTS

A factory assessment audits the production capacity and performance of a factory against proven quality principles. As such, the key criteria assessed are policies, procedures and records that would indicate the factory’s ability to deliver consistent quality management over time, rather than at one given time or only for certain products. Core areas and processes addressed by a factory assessment include:

1. Quality Management System
2. Good Manufacturing Practice ( Factory Enviroment Standards)
3. Product Control
4. Process Control
5. Personnel
     
  FACTORY STOCK QUALITY CONTROL

Quality control is vital aspect of stock control – especially as it may affect the safety of the customers or the quality of the finished product. Efficient stock control should incorporate stock tracking and batch tracking. This means being able to trace a particular item backwards or forwards from source to finished product, and identifying the other items in the batch. Goods should be checked systematically for quality, faults identified and the affected batch weeded out. This would allow you to raise any problem with your supplier and at the same time demonstrate the safety and quality of your product. With a good computerized stock control system, this kind of tracking is relatively straightforward. Manual stock control methods can also use codes to systematize tracking and make it easier to track particular batches. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) can be used to store the information about a products or component’s manufacturing date, to ensure that it is sold or processed in time. The system can also be used to trace faulty products quickly and efficiently.
