According to personal experience and lessons for many years, for the plywood factory, they need to do some of the self-examination work , especially some conventional products. The factory’s inside inspector began grading work in the factory the workers need to put some grade the plywood products first , can find and repair defects before the customers’s QC .
There are many advantages of doing so:
1 can give customers a good impression of self-management.
2 can improve the customer’s quality score.
3 can reduce defective rate.
4 can improve the efficiency of the customer. If the passing rate is not high, the general quality inspector will not always have the patience to stay in the factory to help the factory to quality checking all the plywood.
So, I often speak to the factory, before the customer visit and inspect, please do some self-examination, or spend very little cost to do a good self-inspection job to help maintain customer what I feel is worth, the proposal was applied in practice and then more suppliers.
