Business Continuity despite Lockdown | Ensuring the quality of your plant parts and components thanks to production monitoring at the manufacturer's premises
Feb. 1 2021
Quality remains a top priority for many companies, even in times of a pandemic. Production monitoring directly at the manufacturer ensures both quality and adherence to the project schedule.
Many companies have their own quality representatives who check the quality of the individual components on arrival as well as the quality of the end products. However, this approach means that defects are noticed comparatively late, which already jeopardises the project schedule and - in the worst case - impairs the quality of the end products.
Checking the individual components and system parts directly at the manufacturer's provides security. However, the pre-shipment inspection by the company's own quality representatives is often associated with a great deal of additional work and high travel costs.
In particular, the Corona-related travel restrictions, which currently apply both within Switzerland and internationally, make independent on-site production monitoring difficult.
PRODUCTION MONITORING During A PANDEMIC WITH BUREAU VERITAS
We support companies in carrying out their projects as planned despite economic constraints by taking over production monitoring for them: With the help of our customised shop inspection and expediting services, the purchased parts are inspected worldwide according to individual specifications by experienced employees who are located close to the manufacturer.
With a Shop Inspection components, assemblies or complete systems can be checked at the manufacturer's premises during production and before delivery. In this way, quality and safety defects can be detected immediately and countermeasures can be initiated in good time.
Our Expediting Services ensure compliance with your project schedule by monitoring deadlines at the supplier. Bottlenecks and potential causes for delays are identified as quickly as possible and the effectiveness of countermeasures can be tracked.
We are on site for you
As a leading independent inspection service provider with an extensive global network, we are able to provide you with the right expert on site anywhere in the world, regardless of location. Bureau Veritas is represented in 140 countries and has an extensive expert network of highly qualified auditors & inspectors.
Your advantage: Despite Corona-related travel restrictions, we can support you directly on site with our inspectors. In this way, you minimise risks, assure quality and ensure the best possible business continuity even in uncertain times.
If a physical inspection is not possible due to applicable regulations, we also offer a Remote Inspection under certain conditions - provided this is permissible within the framework of the regulations for the inspection in question.
