What is an Initial Production Check?
Initial Production Check, or IPC, is an inspection service of raw materials, components, and products that are carried out at the very beginning of product production. It is typically performed when 10-20% of your products have been produced.
When should you use Initial Production Check?
Initial Production Check helps to identify potential issues with your products during the very initial phase of the production stage. An Initial Production Check is the first step in ensuring product quality consistency throughout the whole production stage. It helps to verify first-run quality requirements, start your production on the right footings, and keep a consistent quality standard. You will be able to minimize wasted time, rework, and shipping delays that can happen at the later stages of your production.
We recommend you to use Initial Production Check on all kinds of products, especially when you are working with high-risk products and new factories.
How an Initial Production Check can help with your production?
- It ensures that you are using the right raw materials on your products.
- It ensures that the materials fulfill your quality standards.
- It ensures that the materials fulfill the regulatory standards.
- It streamlines your production process by detecting problems and rectifying defects during the early phases of production.
How does Initial Product Check work?
As per the product specification and approved samples provided, we will verify if the correct materials, components, and accessories have been ordered by the factory to your specifications.
In an Initial Production Check, we will also randomly select and inspect a sample of partially produced products for potential defects, then report our findings to you.
