During Production Check

It is vital to ensure that any problems you encounter during the manufacturing cycle are caught as early as possible. That’s why carrying out a during production check, or, DUPRO, is an essential part of the manufacturing process for any business looking to maximize their ROI.

So, what is a During Production Check (DUPRO)?

As the name suggests, this is a full, detailed on-site Product Inspection which can take place at any point during the production process. Most manufacturers will carry out this inspection of randomly selected units when between 20% and 80% of the build has been completed, but it’s your decision.
At Global Inspection Managing, we carry out our checks when at least 20% of your production is finished or packed. This allows you to head off any potential defects or delays before they’re allowed to hurt your company’s reputation.

Why is a DUPRO essential for any company?

It is vital to ensure that your factory continues to meet your original specifications during the manufacturing process. If they don’t, the result will likely be a customer unhappy with their product.
If this problem is allowed to grow, it can hugely eat into your profit margin, as well as harming customer retention.

A DUPRO also helps ensure that your manufacturing schedule is on-track. Again, not keeping a focus on productivity can lead to orders not being met and losing customers.
In a globally competitive world, a DUPRO can help give you a serious head start over your competitors, especially those that choose not to conduct any checks.

What aspects will be checked as part of an effective DUPRO check?

Our comprehensive checklist will ensure that every aspect of manufacturing meets the highest possible standards.
These are just some of the criteria we will check:

  • Product functionality
  • Optimum product performance
  • Strength and durability
  • Aesthetics and product appearance
  • Product specification, to ensure it meets the correct dimensions

However, these aren’t the only factors we take into account.
We’ve been carrying out our During Production Checks since 2008, and have helped hundreds of companies to meet the highest standards.
Our customizable checklists allow us to look at your chosen criteria, selected from hundreds of potential points. Whatever your product category, we can help you ensure consistent quality control, massively cutting down your import risk.
