Quality Assurance Department at Manor Tool & Manufacturing Company
Quality assurance (QA) allows manufacturers to maintain consistency and produce quality components and products that their clients can trust. QA is essential to ensure products are of high quality with no defects. It involves planning and executing quality control tasks during the manufacturing process and proactively addressing quality concerns in the development and production stage. Best practices are established to prevent defects and mistakes during manufacturing. To ensure the fulfillment of quality requirements, QA provides processes, protocols, and procedures to follow and involves inspection, testing, and monitoring production tasks for accurate performance.
Quality control (QC) differs from quality assurance but can be considered a component of the QA process. QC incorporates walkthroughs, testing, and checkpoint reviews as a reactive approach to maintaining quality. QA is a proactive approach to quality management and defines educating staff on tool selection, team training, and processes to improve quality overall. In many facilities, QA can also encompass auditing. We will explore manufacturing quality assurance, its benefits, and our capabilities at Manor Tool to help you understand why a quality assurance plan for manufacturing is necessary.
