Pre-Production Inspections (PPI), also known as Initial Pre-Production checks (IPC), are usually carried out before the production starts. For this inspection, components and materials are inspected and validated to make sure they match your requirements.
During Production Check
During Production Inspections (DUPRO), takes place when 10 ~ 50% of your goods are completed and packed. Units are inspected randomly from the production lines. Potential delays caused by production errors and quality defects can be caught early, and reworked on site.
Pre-shipment inspections (PSI) also known as the Final Random Inspection (FRI) occur when 100% production is completed, and 80% of the goods have been packaged.
