Our goal is to provide our clients with confidence in the quality of the manufactured products and avoid defective products reaching final customers.
INITIAL PRODUCTION CHECK (IPC)
ALS helps clients in identifying problems in order to plan for a suitable solution. The initial start-up production process is key to product quality. ALS engineers intervene to report on the manufacturing status at the early stage of production. We check inventory records, critical material compliance, head count on the production line, workmanship and select samples for testing. We deliver useful control data and assist the client to set up the relevant control matrix.
PRODUCTION MONITORING (PM)
We help clients to monitor on-site production process and work closely with factories to improve the process and ensure work consistency.
This can identify and eliminate defects from beginning to the end of the production. It is important to keep factory accountable and aware any problems at different production stages.
DURING PRODUCTION INSPECTION (DUPRO)
ALS inspectors select representative samples to determine if the quality problems previously detected have been resolved. We communicate with the management of the factory to determine future progress to ensure the consignment meets the shipment schedule. Our inspectors prepare sealed samples from the representative sample size and send them to our accredited laboratories for product safety testing upon request (i.e. due diligence testing).
FINAL RANDOM INSPECTION (FRI)
With production complete, ALS coordinates and performs a final examination of the goods. The service confirms all contractual and technical requirements are built into the product before shipment. Final Random Inspection is the most common inspection service. We apply internationally recognized sampling methods to establish a representative sample size for inspection. We check for quality, quantity, workmanship, functionality, cosmetics, assortment, marking, and the packaging condition. The inspection report includes photos to highlight any of the commercial defects that have been identified.
LOADING SUPERVISION (LS)
Before shipping to buyers, ALS counts and loads products, seals containers at factory or port to ensure integrity of products shipped can meet buyers' requirements.
