A Guide to Quality Control of Kid Electronic Toys Supplier
As we know, China is one of the largest toy exporters of the world. So it’s good for your to learn how to purchase electronic toys for your children from this country.
For most of the manufacturers, they treat cost more important than quality.However, product quality should be the first important factor for a factory.
When selecting suppliers, how can we safely say that their quality control is in place?
We’ll tell you just that! Now, take a look at our guide, so you’ll know what it takes for a supplier to have good quality control. If the supplier practices the following measures, you can be sure to put your trust in the resulting products at the end of the line.
1.IQC (Incoming Quality Control)
This process involves evaluating the quality of parts and materials before the manufacture of a product even begins. Incoming inspection must be carried out in accordance with international standards, and if the supplier doesn’t meet this level of expectation, we certainly think twice about using them. The more time put into this process, the less likely further faults will be found later on. It allows you to control quality before you’ve even conducted the first impressions and initial inspections.
2.LQC (Line Quality Control)
This process takes place during the actual production, and is an extremely important time. At this point,
quality control must be conducted. An excellent supplier will carry out completely-thorough inspections during this phase. This is not only to check the product function, but also to ensure that its appearance is up to the standards of the customer. We wouldn’t want to offer you anything but the best.
3.FQC (Finish Quality Control)
This key process is carried out by the quality department and involves inspecting the produce every hour after line quality control, which always follows the international quality inspection standards. This specific spot check will be determined by the standard that is selected by the customer. To go the extra mile and ensure buyers are receiving their money’s worth, some suppliers will test a higher standard of product than that specified by the customer.
4.OQC (Outgoing Quality Control)
This process comes soon after FQC. The product will be packaged up, and inspection will follow the international standards, once again. The scope of inspection needs to make sure the product packaging is harmless, and will not pose any risks to children and their health. This is an especially vital step for manufacturers, who should strive to make sure every single one of their electronic toys are safe for their consumers to use. As a company, it is your responsibility to make sure whatever leaves your factory is free of danger. Even slight carelessness can put your buyers at great risk. Never overlook the importance of quality control, as it can either make or break your business. When OQC finishes, (and once the inspection passes, of course), a qualified quality inspection report can be generated. Further steps can be taken, however. If you are still unconfident with the quality control level of your supplier’s factory, it is possible to visit in person and inspect the goods for yourself.
5.IPQC (Patrol Inspection)
In addition to the processes above, suppliers with excellent quality control will practice IPQC, otherwise known as InPut Process Quality Control. This involves making circuit inspections among people working, which can prove to be especially effective. It’s important this step is done, to ensure workers are carrying out their jobs properly. Human error can be responsible for many defects product-wise.

If a supplier has followed all the aspects above, better product quality is guaranteed. Additionally, it is worth noting that said inspections are conducted in accordance with the official international standard AQL.

If neglected, faulty products will be produced, not only causing customer dissatisfaction but sparking huge losses for the company.

You’re less likely to face recalls, allowing your business to function better. If suppliers invest lots of money in controlling quality, you know they have best interests at heart.
