All you need to know about quality control

Step A: What is an AQL quality standard?

AQL level means Acceptable quality limit. Wikipedia Link.
For example, you may saw some company say their quality standard is AQL 0, 2.5, 4.0
It means it will allow 0 critical defectives, 2.5 major defectives, and 4 minor defectives.
What is a critical, major and minor defective? Original article Link.

  1. A Critical Defect
    is one that is deemed to be hazardous or unsafe.
    For example, a sharp point that may hurt you. Or the product is not manufactured correctly, it will hurt the user or someone.
  2. A Major Defect
    Is a function problem failure. For example, the phone cannot turn on. It will against the function of a phone.  Other examples
    -Holes and scratches

    “They are common issues to deal with. Most suppliers in Asia have the mentality that these defects can be expected and are not serious. However, for the average importer, these defects could impede the products from being sold.”
    -Size/Weight Discrepancies

    Also common is for measurements to be off, sometimes by millimeters, other times even by inches. It is important to ensure that your inspector has knowledge to use proper measurement devices to ensure the most accurate measurement.
  3. A minor defect
    is a discrepancy from the standards, but it will not very likely to affect the function of a product.
    For example, poor sewing

    Untrimmed or long threads are the most common defects on textile inspection. These are basically minor defect, but it will still be a problem with the end user. So your textile products need to check these problems very seriously.

Step B: What is a Sampling Plan

MIL-STD-105 is a common international sampling plan, although different countries will have their own standard. Here is the sampling chart
