Can any of you guys tell the difference between Quality Alert and a Non Conformance Report?
Also, if you have examples of a Quality Alert Form, perhaps you could let me see.
Thanks in advance
is a signal transmitted,whenever a quality problem is observed;at any given stage of the process viz:during production/final- inspection/packing and at times,after dispatch(to recall the defective product).
The quality problem may or may not end-up into a Non Conformity
A product is being produced by a die.The patrolling inspector notices sudden change in a particular dimension,and his apprehension is that,though the variation in the dimension is within limit at the time of detection,in all the likely hood,this may cross the limit,if not immediately arrested.So preventive measures are applied.
In the given scenario ibid,the 'Non Conformity'
is averted,hence no "Non Conformance Report"
,despite the 'Quality Alert'.
Hope this clears diff.
