Inspection, Audit & Assessment Services – Pre-Production Meeting

Managing risks up-front through alignment of requirements understanding prior to production

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

With increasing pressures on regulatory compliance, reducing time-to-market, decreasing product life cycle and ever increasing complexities in the supply chain; the challenge to deliver quality products on-time continues to increase. To best prepare for quality and success, a buyer needs visibility or verification on the quality of raw material received at the factory as well as the factories understanding of their order requirements (quality, safety, quantity, time, etc.) before production starts.
 
Potential misunderstandings between client specifications and the manufacturer, realized only after production starts, can result in empty hangers in the store and enhanced risk of returns / recalls for the buyer and significant cost through shipment delay, rework, penalty fines and potentially lost client relationships for the vendor / factory.

SOLUTION

Bureau Veritas’ Pre-Production Meeting is a technical review of the order and is attended by representatives from the factory, the vendor, Bureau Veritas and sometimes the buying client. The purpose is to verify that a buying client’s requirements such as order specifications, quality requirements, safety absolutes, are reviewed and fully understand by the factory and all parties involved prior to the start of production. Additionally, it clarifies grey areas and identifies potential risks to resolve prior to production.
 
Bureau Veritas’ comprehensive Pre-Production Meeting checklist criteria and scope helps:
 
• buyers have confidence and better visibility in the quality of their supply chain
• vendors / factories have an understanding as to how to manage and minimize the risks on product quality before production starts.
 
The end result is simple, an enhanced likelihood of quality products aligned to a buyers specific requirements being shipped in full on time.

OUR APPROACH

We recommend the Pre-Production Meeting takes place at least 7 working days prior to the start of production. This allows all parties involved to resolve pending, missing information, complete follow-up actions prior to production.
 
Our Pre-Production Meeting for Apparel covers the following:
