Receiving Inspection Pros and Cons

First of all, being a quality manager and ISO consultant, you have to know that I am in favor of receiving inspections. Some company owners and managers may not want to have their people spend the time needed to adequately inspect incoming goods. A penny saved, perhaps, but a foolish penny.

Without adequate incoming inspection, how do you know what you’re getting from your vendors? Are you so confident of your vendors that you’re willing to risk your production stopping due to incorrect vendor components? Are you willing to piss off your customers by making them wait, or possibly shipping bad product to them?

Sure, a proper receiving inspection takes a bit of time, and of course you have to pay someone to do it. But that little bit of time and money in the beginning can save you much more down the road.
