What is sourcingmx’s , Pro QA - Inspection Services?

 soucingmx through its parent company, Servicios Integrados de Compra SA de CV (www.micomprador.com ) provide the necessary assurance to avoid surprises, reduce costs and improve those processes that are critical to meet your technical and planning specifications.

 

PLANNING AND PREPRODUCTION QUALITY ASSURANCE:

First we ensure that your product specifications and tolerances can be achieved by the supplier, this through the measurement of the supplier`s process capacity and ability (Cp and Cpk) so we can predict the level of acceptance or rejection.

Then we align your specifications to factory language and Mexico’s culture; if necessary we can translate your drawings, specs, manuals and end users documents to Spanish. We ensure quality through early involvement and support.

 

IN PROCESS AND FIRST FINISHES ITEM INSPECTION:

We evaluate samples of your products on selected steps of the process to confirm adherence to your specs allowing any necessary changes, reducing rework time and cost. We also take first finish items samples prior to shipment to identify problems at the point of origin not in your facilities, reducing any correction time eliminating fast and directly the root cause.

 

POTENTIAL PROBLEMS ANALYSIS AND CORRECTIVE ACTIONS:

We systematically protect your plans; we think ahead revealing the driving factors of your plans and identify ways to lower risks, ensuring the greatest chance of success.

In case of a problem situation, we can take action on your behalf or provide you enough information to take quality decisions to solve problems and avoid recurrence; we use a wide range of Quality Assurance Strategies and Techniques including Kepner &Tregoe, Statistical Quality Analysis, Tolerance Analysis, IMAIC, Process Mapping and Analysis, etc.

 

PROCESS DEVELOPMENT AND QUALITY IMPROVEMENTS:

When you know you chose the right supplier but need different or improved processes we can look for new processes or refining existing ones, to optimize the manufacturing process, scaling up the production process, making changes to raw materials or components and process parameters to ensure quality is maintained during large-scale production, improve yields reducing costs, investigating alternative materials or new machinery to improve efficiency, quality and yields in bottleneck areas, write technical reports and cost estimates, documenting development work and implementing profit improvement programs;

 

CONTAINER LOADING CHECK:

During a Container Loading Check, we will select boxes at random to assure each carton bears the quantity of product ordered, the quality matches your specifications and/or approved sample provided by you, and that all packaging material have the correct barcodes, labeling, and packing materials. The entire container loading process is strictly supervised.

 

CORPORATE SOCIAL AUDITS:

In an increasingly social equity-focused world, Corporate Social Audits are becoming a popular tool to determine whether a factory is maintaining fair working conditions. For larger buyer companies, Social Audits are a requirement, mostly to protect brands and company reputation. However, socially-conscious small and medium sized companies are also using the service more and more.

§  Child & Forced Labor

§  Health & Safety

§  Freedom of association and right to bargain

§  Discrimination

§  Disciplinary practices

§  Working hours and environment

§  Compensation

§  Management systems

 

Keep in mind, however, that while factories may make temporary fixes in order to pass a follow up Social Audit, it is likely that after the follow up these improvements may be forgotten or dismissed. As always, constant quality assurance checks are worth their weight in gold and should be a regular step in any supply chain.
