4 Quality Standard Levels To Implement To Reduce RisksBefore you start working with a manufacturer are you 100% certain that they fully understand your quality expectations? Do they know whether a particular defect is minor or major? If there’s a slight variation, at what point does it become unacceptable?

Without quality standards, a lot of this is guesswork leading to higher costs, delayed shipments, and, ultimately, poor quality products and annoyed customers and suppliers!

Sofeast’s CEO, Renaud, and Adrian from the team discuss the levels of quality standards, from basic to more advanced. Used together, they keep everyone aligned!
