15 years of experience in prototyping and manufacturing.

In product development process, prototypes can help engineers evaluate product concept before mass production. Prototype quality is important to make sure engineers get correct feedback from the prototypes.

Prototype Quality Assurance and Control is important in the product development process. It ensures prototypes achieve the quality requirements with effective quality assurance measures. This blog will discuss the main components of prototype quality assurance and control.

What Is Prototype Quality Assurance

Prototype Quality Assurance is a process to ensure prototypes meet predefined quality standards and specifications. Its measurements include inspection, test and report at different stages of the product development cycle to identify defects on the prototypes.

Key Components Of Prototype Quality

Material

Prototype material is important for its performance and functionality. Material testing and verification help identify any substandard or non-compliant materials.

Dimensional

Measuring the prototype’s dimensional accuracy against the design specifications is essential to identify any deviations and ensure precise alignment.

Aesthetics

The surface finish of the prototype needs to be evaluated to ensure it meets the desired aesthetics and cosmetic requirements. Usually this is done by visual check.

Functional

Functionality is the goal to make prototypes. engineers can test the prototype’s functionality according to predefined test methods and requirements.

Fit And Assembly

The prototype’s fit and assembly with other components need to be checked to ensure proper functionality.

Prototype Quality Control Process

Establish Clear Quality Standards

According to the ISO 9001 certified quality management system, a prototype company can incorporate standardized production procedures and work instructions, ensure the high level of quality assurance. An example of production flow chart as below:

Statistical Process Control (SPC)

Implement SPC techniques to monitor and control the manufacturing process. SPC helps Identify the key Characteristics to control in the process base on the function analysis of your prototype, define proactive corrective actions accordingly.

Document Inspection Procedures

Develop documented inspection procedures that detail how each aspect of the prototype will be inspected and tested. This ensures consistency and repeatability in the quality control process.

Measure With Advanced Inspection Equipment

Inspection equipment’s such as coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), optical comparators for optic prototypes and other precision measurement tools enable accurate inspections. Some major equipment as blow:

Traceability And Documentation

Maintain traceability throughout the quality control process allows for easy tracking and analysis, it can help for identifying potential issues and make effective corrective measures.

Continuous Improvement

Conducting regular reviews and gathering feedback from engineers who excite the quality measures and continuously improve current quality process.

Iso 9001 Quality Assurance Certification

GB/T9001-2016/ISO 9001: 2015​
GB/T9001-2016/ISO 9001: 2015​

Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 9001 provide a Quality Management System (QMS) which help prototype manufacturer maintain a good quality service to customer all the time.

Through this quality management system, KUSLA focus on customer’s needs and specifications of quality control in manufacturing, this makes us delivery qualified products to our customer on time with over 98% pass rate.
