What are AQL Quality Checks?

AQL (Acceptable Quality Limit) Sampling is the cornerstone of quality control

Developed several decades ago by Harold F. Dodge, AQL has been modified since then into a method widely used in product inspection to ensure standards are met.

Put simply, AQL lays out how many defective products are accepted under one single inspection under AQL sampling guides.

This makes it useful for both buyers and suppliers to ensure that large orders are completed to the right standards.

AQL sampling uses two key questions to determine quality – how many units should be inspected, and how many defective products are allowable before an inspection fails.

PR Facilities Management Ltd is well-versed in the world of AQL Quality Checks which allows us to provide vital information on defective products and ensure quality.

Why are AQL Quality Checks important?

AQL lays out a quantitative reference to both buyers and suppliers on how many defective products are affected under one single inspection.

This provides a useful figure to ensure that large orders are completed to the level of standards set by the manufacturer or seller, as well as by the buyer.

It is also seen as the most efficient way of assessing quality without slowing down processes, ensuring packaging and fulfilment remains fast and accurate whilst also maintaining high standards.

In the world of logistics distribution – especially SIM Fulfilment – this means large orders can be met in a timely fashion and assessed for quality quickly and accurately.
