Quality Assurance and Control in Apparel Production & Shipping

J. Independent Audits

When your products are ready to ship, our independent Audits will randomly check %30 of your products. These Audits are independent. This means even the general manager or the owner has no rights to interfere their process and judgments.

The procedure is as follows:

They will randomly check %30 of the boxes. (Dimensions, weight , on-box stickers and the inner pieces as if they are mentioned as same as on the box stickers.)

  • They will randomly choose %30 of the packed garments and open them to check their bags, folding type, quality, look, accessories to see as if they were manufactured as your standards and specifications.
  • Audits will measure %30 of your garment to see as if they were manufactured as your standards and specifications.
  • If the Audits will find more than %2 problems with the checked garments, they order to open and check all your products according to their critics. After the check, they will audit again.

K. Working Loss and Over Cuts

Each stage of production may result in some loss and substandard work that must be culled during quality control and Audit check. In anticipation of this, we will cut and sew a few extra pieces. You can expect your final production to be within 5%, plus or minus, of your expected count. In the event that we manufacture a slight overage, it is expected that the customer will accept it.

PRODUCTION

After having reviewed and approved the sample, we grade the pattern according to your grade rules. We can assist you with deciding what size and grading scale to use. After deciding what grading scale and size range are to be produced, we proceed with getting your marker printed. The marker is the template used to cut your fabric.

Sewing follows cutting unless you garments are receiving special treatments such as dyeing or embroidery.
