To provide our customers with a quality product, as per the standards required by them. The basic Function is to source the facility/product, which fulfils the needs of the inquiry, sent by the buyer and to place the orders on behalf of the buyer to coordinate between the buyer and the manufacturer, at various stages of the production process, ensuring that the end product meets the basic standards required.
Definition of Quality:
A product that is manufactured to acceptable standards from various raw materials, as specified
By the buyer in accordance with agreed contract order sheet and sample
Inspection / Quality Control Process :
When a supplier has been identified, pre production approval is sought from the buyer, through ,sampling of the required product, in accordance with the buyers specifications, which include full technical details and an approved sample or cutting, if available. Approved lab dips and clear packing instructions are essential. Once the buyer approved the sample, the order is placed. Bhuiyan Garments monitors the production process from its inspection, through to the shipment stage. We conduct a 'tags inspection process.
-Initial produc 17on check (I.P.C)
-Mid production check (M.P.C)
-Final random inspection (F.R.I)
INITIAL PRODUCTION CHECK (I.P.C) :
The IPC is done as soon as the manufacturer has started production and has 50-100 pieces completed and ready for packing. In the case of fabric., in dyed / bleached or printed form. The purpose of the IPC is to determine if the initial batch of products produced by the manufacturer complies with the client's specifications. If at this stage. Any deviation beyond established tolerance is noticed, timely corrections can be made, before bulk productions begins.
The IPC is a preliminary inspection, covering
-Quality of fabrics-as specified.
-Weight or construction of fabric
-Style and visual appearance
-Color and/or printing match of approved color swatch
-Accessories (buttons, zippers, buckles, etc)
Depending on the type of product, 10-20 pieces! Meters are examined. Any discrepancies / variations or defects are pointed out to the manufacturer for correction or improvement. A written inspection report is prepared; confirming observations and a copy is given to the manufacturer. This report is also sent to the customer. If a manufacturer declares that he is unable to change or improve any variations or discrepancies, the customer is advised immediately and the representative samples sent for examination and decision on continuing production.
Mid Production Check (M.P.C):
The mpc is similar to the initial production check and is in general, a logical follow up of the IPC. The mpc should be made a few days after the ipc, particularly when deficiencies have been found during ipc. For large orders, more than one mpc may be performed. The mpc assures that any variations /discrepancies previously reported are being corrected during further production and that a satisfactory quality standard ls being achieved.
Final Random Inspection (F.R.I):
This is the last inspection and is done when the goods are ready for shipment. This inspection ls performed by at least two quality controllers, one of whom has not been associated with the order before this inspection. This ensures an unbiased report.
Random Sampling :
Units from each lot are drawn at random so that each unit in the lot has an equal chance (without regard to its quality) of being included in the sample. Random sampling inspection 15 a prerequisite to ensure that the sample represents the quality of the lot to a high degree
Selecting Random Member :
Depending on the size of the shipment and specified sampling quantity. The inspector selects a cross section of cartons, from the packing list.
