Only impeccable raw materials and semi-finished products that fulfill defined quality requirements may be used in the production process. Therefore, high standards for incoming goods inspection are needed.
To reduce non-conformance costs, a comprehensive inspection of incoming and outcoming goods is important. Through systematic incoming inspection, quality issues caused by suppliers are identified before they reach your production, not later when it’s too late.
Incoming goods inspection includes an incoming check to verify if the material arrived in good condition at your warehouse before accepting it into your stock.
To get complete transparency about all incoming and outgoing goods, a comprehensive documentation is required. This includes the input of many data fields as well as photo or video documentation. Very often, the required tools to ensure compliance to documentation policies are not in place.
In some cases additional measurements are needed for the incoming quality inspection procedure to verify if the product quality is according to the desired specification. In general this means checking if the boxes and quantity are ok, the labels are applied in the right place and if all procedures are fulfilled according to quality assurance guidelines.
Most often, current documentation workflows are based on paper resulting in many inefficiencies.
Usually verification checks include data such as date, customers, packed items. In many cases, the documentation with media content such as images and video would be beneficial. Using standard photo cameras for documentation is a time-intensive and error-prone process. The use of a smartwatch with camera can ease the incoming quality control procedure and improves the quality assurance process and product quality.
Inspections are important but need time. In a best case scenario, inspections are only performed when they are really needed. This would require a system which is capable of requesting inspections procedures in a dynamic way, based on business rules which comply to existing business processes and regulations.
