To help you ensure that your potential or existing suppliers deliver high-quality products, operate efficiently, and support continuous improvement, process surveys and factory audits can be performed.
What is a Factory Audit?
The objective of a Factory Audit is to ensure that the factory you choose is capable of producing your goods to your required specifications and within your given timeframe.
The Factory Audit can cover issues such as:
Is your supplier 'ISO 9001 certified' by a reputable certification body?
Has the supplier implemented Quality Management System (QMS) standards to manage its key business processes? A QMS can help the supplier achieve greater consistency in the production process.
The existence and reliability of the factory (monthly production capabilities, the type of machinery used, the main products produced, and in-house/outsourced operations)
Whether the premises and factory capacities correlate with your order (assessing production facilities, the quality control system for incoming goods inspection, in-process controls and final online inspections); how is packaging material handled; how is non-conforming material handled; how are communication, document control & workflow; and complaints management managed?
The training and experience of the workforce as well as the working conditions
