The quality control and inspection industry is focused on ensuring that products, services, and processes meet established standards and specifications. It plays a critical role in various sectors, including manufacturing, construction, healthcare, food production, and more. The primary objective of this industry is to identify and rectify defects, errors, and deviations from predefined requirements to enhance the overall quality and reliability of the end products or services. Quality control involves the systematic monitoring and evaluation of different stages of production or service delivery to prevent defects from occurring. This can include checks on raw materials, intermediate stages of production, and the final product. Inspection, on the other hand, refers to the examination of products or processes to verify whether they adhere to predefined standards.
