Frequently Asked Questions

Conducting a suppliers audit is an effective way to evaluate the reliability of a company identified by the buyer, to verify the supplier’s capability and performance according to the specifications. Once the factory audit is completed, we are able to assess whether or not the supplier is reliable for the purchasing project. The factory audit is the last and most determining step in the selection process for a successful procurement project in Liz Group.

Even if you already have a Chinese supplier, it’s always a good idea to continue looking for additional suppliers as a backup plan in case your current supplier falls through or experiences issues with production or quality control. Additionally, having multiple suppliers can give you more negotiating power and better pricing options.

While there’s multiple mistakes that can be made when considering quality control in China, we have found that the most common are:
  • Not properly evaluating the credibility of suppliers
  • Not performing onsite inspections of China suppliers
Properly evaluating the credibility of suppliers can help to avoid factories that will be problematic with quality control processes, and onsite inspections can help you avoid trade companies, as well as ensure quality control processes are in place and consistently followed. 
This is actually a misnomer. Quality control isn’t better in America, it’s just that it’s harder to make sure quality control processes are followed in China. The common reasons for this include:
  • Language barriers (many high-quality factories in China don’t have staff that can speak English)
  • Supervision difficulty (it’s far more difficult to travel to China and supervise production than it is to do the same at a local factory)
The manufacturing industry in China is extremely robust, and there are many factories that are capable of understanding, and following, strict quality control processes. Many companies rely on third-party expertise to help supervise quality control in a China factory (like relying on the services of a sourcing specialist, like Liz Group)
There are multiple strategies you can use to avoid quality problems during the manufacturing process:
  • Provide clear expectations for quality control procedures to manufacturers
  • Supervise production to ensure that quality control processes are followed
  • Respond quickly to production issues as they arise
The best way to make sure that products meet your quality expectations is to:
  • Set clear expectations of what your quality expectations are before production
  • Supervise quality control onsite
  • Respond quickly as production issues arise
  • Perform a final inspection before products are shipped
While the manufacturing industry in China is well-developed, there are some unique challenges to maintaining quality control in a China factory. Some of those challenges are:
  • Language barriers
  • Improper or unclear expectations of quality
  • Inability to react quickly to production issues (unless you’re physically present)
  • Inability to ensure quality control processes are followed by not being onsite during production
Choosing a china supplier is challenging, but it’s worth the effort. This is especially true since choosing a high-quality factory will reduce the likelihood (but not eliminate) of issues with quality control. Here are some tips to follow in order to choose a high-quality factory in China:
  • Research multiple options that may fit your needs
  • Filter choices based on their experience, product specialty, lead times, and communication skills
  • Always perform a thorough sampling process
  • Allow as much time as needed to follow these tips without feeling rushed
If you think that your business doesn’t have the time, resources, or expertise to find a factory in China that’s a good fit, you may want to look to the services of a sourcing specialist, like Liz Group.

This is a mixed answer. Your supplier should absolutely participate in your quality control strategy, but they should not be left to be solely responsible for following it. Whether quality control processes are followed is ultimately up to you, so you can’t afford to leave it entirely up to your supplier to handle.
