Inspection is a critical part in the quality control process in manufacturing. Quality inspection ensures that product quality and work steps performed meet the defined standards.
Raw materials and components are often checked prior to the assembly process; products can also be inspected during and post production.
Frontline workers measure, examine, and test whether work steps were carried out correctly, and that products and their components were assembled or maintained according to specifications.
Human judgment is critical in visual inspection and cannot be automated away. The workers who perform this task deserve the tool necessary to make the job more manageable.
