We can accommodate from a single to multiple orders for an entire project. The scope or level of inspection is determined by the client’s requirements which are normally controlled by a Quality Plan. This scope can range from final inspection to an intensive inspection regime starting from the pre-production meeting, through identification and inspection of all raw materials, inspections at all prescribed hold-point stages, witnessing all tests, verification of all documentation and certificates and a final release inspection.

We carry out inspection using our resource base of field Engineers and our global network of offices. All field Engineers are inducted by our Quality Management System and are assessed on an ongoing basis for capability and competency. This has a direct, positive impact on the quality of the inspection services we provide. Vendor Inspection and Expediting Services.

Field and Desk Expediting

Today, expediting is an integral part of the procurement process. In the past, it was considered a corrective rather than preventive function. However, as both the schedule and the pricing of projects become increasingly critical, expediting should be incorporated into the project planning at the onset to ensure timely delivery.

Expediting is the continuous process, of ensuring that final delivery to the job site is achieved within the shortest possible time frame. An expediting service should be implemented independently of inspection activities and be carried out by experienced field expeditors.

Depending on client requirements, expediting services may apply at different stages of a project such as fabrication and assembly, rectification work, material deficit, failure on test or inspection, shipment and packing, and submission of documentation.

This can be a very useful tool for clients who are considering placing orders with vendors they are unfamiliar with or those they may have reservations about.

In addition, it may be beneficial, as part of a ‘lessons learnt’ exercise, to receive a full assessment of a manufacturer, once a problematic order has been completed. Supplier Evaluation will include though, not be limited to, details of the vendor’s Quality System, Traceability, Capacity, Current Workload, Manpower, Affiliations, History/Client base, Number of Personnel and their qualifications.
