Our plant is just now beginning a 2nd shift, of very limited production. We expect it to grow over the next several months, but for now, there will be just a supervisor, and 2 or 3 team members, all performing manufacturing jobs. There is likely only 30 minutes or less of required Quality inspection, so rather than place a FT QC inspector there, we will be training one fo the existing team members as a backup, to perform inspection "as needed" on that shift. Our upper mgmt wants this backup person to be the shift supervisor, as opposed to one of the operators. In my mind, it's a bit of a conflict having anybody other than an independent inspector performing QC, but is there anything about having the supervisor perform the checks that makes this arrangement more objectionable than having one of his direct supports do inspection? I'm just curious. Thanks.
