Classification of the types of defects
Our work we perform Quality Inspection, is to find defects (non-compliance), to classify them and mostly correct them.
We can define Default as: “It’s a non-conformity presented by the product compared to its specifications.”
Usually, defects are classified into three categories:
– Critical Defects: resulting from a non conformity impossible to solve, which compromises the product for its location, for its functionality or its visual harmony.
– Larger defects: resulting from compliance can not be resolved, partially compromises the product for its location, for its functionality or its visual harmony.
– Defects smaller: resulting from a non totally correctable line, which does not compromise the quality of the product. Hard to be found after correction.
Listen for the fact that defects are classified. Classification is very important to define remedial programs, as we shall see.
