Flexline Furniture Industries Sdn Bhd uses the recognized international quality control standards to conduct inspections. We refer to the most widely accepted sampling methods such as MIL-STD-105E, ABC-STD-105, ISO2859, DIN40.080, BS6001, NFK06-021/022.
They are based on mathematical theories of probability and offer the advantage of clearly defining the number of samples to be drawn for inspection from a given lot or consignment.
They also suggest the maximum number of defective items allowed in a the sample size
Unless otherwise instructed, we used the single sampling plan normal level II (according to the MIL-STD 105E standard). This is generally the common requirement for international products manunfactured
You can use the AQL table to calculate the number of sample drawn depending on the shipment quantity. The customer defines the AQL and the maximum number of defective goods allowed in the sample size.
Defects detected during visual inspection are classified into 3 categories:
- Critical : Likely to result in unsafe condition or contravene mandatory regulation (no critical defect is accepted)
- Major : Reduces the usability of the product or is an obvious appearance defect
- Minor : doesn't reduce the usability of the product, but is a defect beyond the defined quality standard.
Customer can also specify what points are minor, major or critical in a checking list together with the inspection criteria and product specification
