During Production Inspection (abbreviated DPI or DUPRO) is the second step in a factory-based inspection. DPI occurs after goods have been produced, and it is typically the first indicator of problems. The During Production Inspection can detect and subsequently prevent production and shipping delays.
While a DPI is similar to pre-production and post-production inspections, there are some distinct differences. DUPRO inspections are necessary to protect the manufacturer by ensuring prompt order fulfillment with products that meet the buyers specifications.
During a DPI, inspectors will want to see the products that have already passed your internal quality control, so they are only looking at products that have been finished and packed. It is best to have this inspection when 20% to 40% of the order has been produced. Examination at this stage avoids quality issues at the beginning of production and delays toward the end, especially if problems are found, and the manufacturer needs a corrective action plan.
Inspectors will sample your completed goods based on the internationally-accepted standard ANSI/ASQC Z1.4 (ISO2859-1). Some of the things they will do are as follows:
Perform a Quality Control assessment of the selected goods that adheres to AQL sampling protocols
Check the packaging and labels
Verify the number of finished products
Examine the production situation and the clients requirements for the shipment
Verify that the rest of the shipment is traceable through the production process
Test the completed goods for safety, durability, performance, and function.
Why Source DPI in India?
Importers take a risk when ordering products from India. Issues such as cultural differences and language barriers can make dealing with manufacturers challenging. That is why you should outsource your DPI to Indian companies. They can be a successful intermediary between the importer and the manufacturer, and since they are native to India, they will be more attuned to the cultural differences.
Especially now, with so many travel and trade restrictions, it is important to have connections in India to ensure your orders are completed and shipped correctly. Working with a third-party processor will give you an added sense of security that your orders will not fall victim to factory delays and production errors. Manufacturing in India is known for its streamlined processes and solid quality control. Just because Indian factories can produce goods at cheaper rates than domestic factories doesnt mean the products are inferior. On-the-ground DPI performed by a reputable Indian processor will provide you with cost-effective, high-quality items delivered without delays or production problems.
Benefits of a Third-Party DUPRO Inspection
Most manufacturers rely on third-party processors to handle all of their inspection needs. Third-party DUPRO inspectors have several benefits that may not be readily apparent, such as complete transparency during the examination and results. Since a Third-Party Inspection service is not related to the manufacturer, it can be completely impartial and serve only to verify the process and identity defects.
Third-Party Inspectors also have the advantage of being entirely up-to-date with current local, regional and national regulations. Since regulations vary by country and region, and they change frequently. Manufacturers can have trouble keeping up with these national and regional differences in requirements. However, third-party processors make it their business to stay up-to-date. Their only obligation is to make sure your product meets the highest standards, goes out on time, and arrives before the deadline.
