During production inspection: Maintaining quality standards throughout manufacturing

What is during production inspection?

During Production Inspection (DPI), also referred to as In-Process Inspection, takes place once at least 10% of an order is manufactured. This proactive step enables the detection of issues during earlier stages of production, providing enough time for necessary adjustments and improvements. Additionally, it facilitates monitoring the production timeline to ensure it stays on track. Samples for inspection are chosen randomly, following established international (AQL) standards and procedures.

When to conduct a during production inspection?

A During Production Inspection is ideally performed when the production is 10%-80% finished, to be able to prevent production defects and deviations.
