Inspection and Quality Control in Manufacturing
In manufacturing, quality control is a process that ensures customers receive products free from defects and meet their requirements. Inspection and measurement is needed during production for quality control because of the inherent variability introduced by the machines, tools, raw materials, and human operators which causes variations in the different quality characteristics (length, diameter, thickness, tensile strength, surface finish etc.) of the product. Inspection and testing is very important in maintaining a certain quality level in the product during production. It helps to control the quality of products by fixing the sources of defects immediately after they are detected. Several non-destructive inspection methods also help to perform in-service inspection to avoid any catastrophic failure and predict the remaining life of the product.
