The overall point of quality control is to prevent products with defects from reaching a consumer because the true cost of a product defect can be extreme. If a consumer receives a product with defects, a lot of bad and costly things can happen. If the product causes injury or death, just the cost of litigation can be enough to put even a large manufacturing organization out of business. And that’s ignoring the emotional toll of having one of your products hurt a person.
On the flip side, high quality standards help build a company’s reputation for quality. These high-quality standards can help attract prospects, generate referrals, earn reorders and allow the company to set higher prices. That is why QC is so important and should be emphasized early and often. For more on this, continue reaching below on how to improve your QC today.
