Initial Production Check

It’s faster and cheaper to prevent problems than it is to fix them. That’s why we recommend our Initial Production Check (IPC) services for any business that conducts large-scale manufacturing runs. You could catch potential ten-thousand-dollar problems well in advance, saving you a huge amount of time and money.

What is an Initial Production Check (IPC)?

This type of check is carried out before your manufacturing run starts, typically within the first 20% of the process.
Rather than checking the products, an initial production check (IPC) will inspect both the machinery and the materials to be used, in order to guarantee the highest possible standards as well as complete consistency across the production run.

What are the benefits of an Initial Production Check (IPC)?

By heading off potential problems before the manufacturing process begins, you can prevent a number of issues from occurring:

  • Checking the quality of the materials and components used means that you can guarantee a much higher standard of product. This can help enhance your reputation among your customers, and give you a much better chance of repeat custom.
  • You can avoid the risk of inferior products. Unfortunately, it’s not unheard of for companies to discover that the materials used were not of the standard specified in the design. You should never run the risk of paying for a higher standard of quality than you actually receive.
  • An initial production check (IPC) is likely to pick up any potential issues in manufacturing, i.e. compatibility problems between parts, or between the machinery and other components. These issues, if left undiagnosed, could add weeks to the manufacturing process, costing you more time, resources, and money.
    Essentially, an initial production check acts as an ‘early warning’ check against future issues. Rather than have to fix problems at your own expense at a later date, you can catch and prevent them earlier.
