Hello,

I am developing Inspection Plan for components and finished products that required to go for receiving inspection in my company. There are almost 3000 parts including custom molded parts, off the shelf, spare parts, assemblies, sub-assemblies etc.

Can someone guide me how should i proceed with developing inspection plan for 3000 parts ? can anyone advice strategy that can minimize lots of work for creating inspection plan as i am thinking creating 3000 Inspection plan may take 2-3 years. We are class III medical device company.

Thanks
Mahendra

Mahendra,

Why not select and develop suppliers you can trust to provide you with conforming products instead?

Hi Mahendra
There is some strategy available like
1. Grouping the list into similar families such as Rubber commodity, fasteners group, fabrication,proprietary which involves only visual inspection, etc. Thereby the 3000 can be brought done to hundreds. There creating individual inspection plan for some critical or unique components.

Welcome to The Cove, Mahendra!

I would start by determining what parts/products have been the most troublesome and start with those as a priority. Hopefully, you already have some data to guide you there.

Beyond that, start working towards John's suggestion above. Inspection is just a band-aid, not the cure.

Sounds like some A-B-C analysis is in order.
  • "A" items are those that present the most risk and might require skilled inspection;
  • "B" items present some level of risk but allow for reduced incoming verification
  • "C" items might be catalog, off-the-shelf products that need only be verified against a PO for being what they're supposed to be.
You can do some form of the above categorization without creating inspection plans for every purchased product. It's a good idea to develop a strategy towards eliminating receiving inspection to the extent possible. Use the data from inspection to help your suppliers to do a better job when possible, or seek alternate sources that are more reliable.

Thank you everyone for your response.

We are working on building trusted suppliers to provide conforming products meanwhile i am developing inspection plan.

How do i categorize risk level ? Does all off the shelf or catalog parts required just verification against PO ?

Thanks

Experience is the best guide for assessing risk. Look to where there have been problems in the past, or to areas where failure could result in some form of catastrophic consequences.

Whether or not all (or even some) catalog items may be verified against the PO also depends on risk and history. How often are purchased catalog items found to be discrepant in some way, and what happens when they are? No one here can answer all of these questions for you because every situation is unique. When faced with the daunting task of creating inspection plans when there are thousands of different items involved, you need to categorize based on rational risk assessment, then apply your plans to categories rather than individual products.
