Chinese suppliers do not understand QC words or Quality Control
Chinese suppliers of China products and services are always confused when they are asked for Quality Control, Quality Inspections, Pre-shipment Inspections or factory audits by their buyers. It is not clear and simple to them. So Buyers beware.
At AMREP, we are very clear on the meaning of Quality Inspections and Quality Control. We trained our quality specialists on the words and concepts of Quality Control. They made it clear, understandable and applicable to suppliers production processes.
Quality Control is a process within a Production Process. Pre-shipment inspection is only a method of inspecting finished products. Sometimes called Random Inspection.
Quality Inspections is a confusing word. We ask our customer to define “quality” and specifically what “quality” are we inspecting for.
Quality solutions, methods and QC tools are different for different products. AMREP SMS is organized into departments to with different focused teams with different quality skills and product focused.
