When thinking of quality control, most people think of jobs associated with pharmaceuticals or the food industry. In reality, quality control can be found in any industry, including the green industry! Quality control is a process that strives to maintain standards and specifications of products. These standards are utilized by managing the inputs used in production, the overall production of goods, and by testing the finished products to ensure adequate performance. Quality control is important for so many reasons. By establishing a quality control program, companies can take the guess work and uncertainty out of product performance.
Quality control programs create consistent and predictable outcomes by meeting and maintaining certain product specifications, functionality and overall performance. Additionally, by implementing quality control standards, consumers are able to put their trust in their vendors. Knowing that products are continually analyzed and inspected allows consumers to rest assured that the finished goods are up to not only the the consumer’s standards, but the industry standards. Quality control holds company’s accountable for these standards, which results in functional products and finished goods.
