QUALITY CONTROL SPECIFICATIONQuality controlQuality control is a process employed to ensure a certain level of quality in a product or service.It may include whatever actions a business deems necessary to provide for the control andverification of certain characteristics of a product or service. The basic goal of quality control isto ensure that the products, services, or processes provided meet specific requirements and aredependable, satisfactory, and fiscally sound.Essentially, quality control involves the examination of a product, service, or process for certainminimum levels of quality. The goal of a quality control team is to identify products or servicesthat do not meet a company’s specified standards of quality. If a problem is identified, the job ofa quality control team or professional may involve stopping production temporarily. Dependingon the particular service or product, as well as the type of problem identified, production orimplementation may not cease entirely.Usually, it is not the job of a quality control team or professional to correct quality issues.Typically, other individuals are involved in the process of discovering the cause of quality issuesand fixing them. Once such problems are overcome, the product, service, or process continuesproduction or implementation as usual.Quality control can cover not just products, services, and processes, but also people. Employeesare an important part of any company. If a company has employees that don’t have adequateskills or training, have trouble understanding directions, or are misinformed, quality may beseverely diminished. When quality control is considered in terms of human beings, it concernscorrectable issues. However, it should not be confused with human resource issues.Often, quality control is confused with quality assurance. Though the two are very similar, thereare some basic differences. Quality control is concerned with the product, while qualityassurance is process–oriented.Even with such a clear-cut difference defined, identifying the differences between the two can behard. Basically, quality control involves evaluating a product, activity, process, or service. Bycontrast, quality assurance is designed to make sure processes are sufficient to meet objectives.Simply put, quality assurance ensures a product or service is manufactured, implemented,created, or produced in the right way; while quality control evaluates whether or not the endresult is satisfactory.Quality Control Tools • This allows the machinist to make required adjustments to the machinery in order to maintain strict tolerances of the finished parts. Using quality control tools, the machinist will observe the readings of the selected parts and adjust the machinery to maintain the proper finish readings.
• The establishment and monitoring of standards at department level is just as important to quality control as overseeing the overall manufacturing process. Computer technology has made it possible to use automated quality control tools to great effect. Tools of this type are constantly gathering and arranging data in formats that quality control and assurance personnel can evaluate.Quality Control Inspection • Managing the quality control process often means balancing production standards with standardized quality control inspection. For purposes of inspection, a company often uses quality checklists on which the inspector records the number, causes and frequency of product defaults. • A degree program in quality management may help students earn positions in quality control inspection. Such positions may oversee testing techniques for a particular company or manufacturer.Quality Control Testing • Quality control tests are an important part of the manufacturing industry because these tests ensure the end-users safety and satisfaction with their purchases. Quality control tests and methods are usually divided into three basic categories. • Owners and managers may need to recalibrate their production equipment or train employees on how to use the equipment. In some ways, quality control tests allow for an internal inspection to find production errors. Failing to solve the real issue behind poor quality controls will continue to result in poorly produced products.Quality Process Control • A dual major in fashion may be helpful to a quality control engineer that is seeking a job inspecting clothing, and a minor in computer technology may be useful to someone who wants to get a job inspecting electronics. There are various other requirements to become a quality process engineer. An applicant typically needs to be able to write well, know how to use a computer, have experience with certain programs, and be able to follow directions. • Professionals in the field focus on both industrial engineering principles and the utilization of human labor to ensure efficiency, safety, and quality in production. Among other tasks, a quality process engineer studies current production and quality control measures, develops ways to improve them, and trains workers on new policies.Quality Control Program • For a quality control process to be successful, specific procedures often need to be instituted with a manager or supervisor to oversee them. This person may be largely responsible for both developing a quality control program and also ensuring expectations are met. In many cases, the purpose of quality control is to ensure all
materials and products submitted for delivery conform to contract or customer requirements. • By employing a comprehensive and well-regulated process, maintaining quality control standards can become part of a daily routine. The first step to creating a quality control program is to determine what is legally required. Many industries must meet government quality regulations, and are in danger of lawsuits, audits, and recalls if discrepancies are discovered.Six Sigma Quality Control • give unfavorable results are modified, while those that comply with the Six Sigma quality process are maintained. DMADV—Define, Measure, Analyze, Design,. • Motorolas Six Sigma business management strategy relies on statistical analysis to optimize an organizations production process. The Six Sigma quality management system is used to measure the number of defects that occur during a process.COMPANIES PERFORMING QUALITY CONTROL SPECIFICATION:TECHNOLEADIt is quality driven company and targeting customers that appreciate quality.TECHNOLEAD is certified for ISO 9001:2008, Management System Certificate, from thefamous Det Norske Varitas.
