Simply put: quality control is key to success in manufacturing. When an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) makes a product, the product needs to be consistent and high quality. If the product is inconsistent or of poor quality, it can cause problems for the OEM and their customers.

These problems can include taking longer to get the product to market and the OEM’s reputation being damaged. It may even cause problems in the relationship between the OEM and its suppliers. The worst thing that can happen is that people might stop buying the product or get hurt by it.

Contract manufacturers are companies that manufacture products for OEMs. To compete, they must adhere to high quality standards. OEMs need a trusted manufacturing partner with a reliable process that yields consistent results. Unfortunately, not all manufacturers meet this standard.

Contract manufacturers like RiverSide Integrated Solutions (RIS) stand out in quality control and assurance areas.

A manufacturer’s quality program is more than meeting the requisite ISO requirements. It represents their proven way of ensuring consistent, high-quality parts. Consistent quality is hard work and requires rigorous, ongoing monitoring of every process, from purchasing to manufacturing to distribution. But the effort and focus on quality is well worth the reward.


The main objective of a quality management system is to enhance the quality of the end products. In such a system, there are three main objectives of quality control. The first is to improve product quality and reduce risks. The second is to gain production efficiencies. And the third is to garner customer loyalty.

These three objectives will be evident in any manufacturer with a robust and functional quality control program.

1. Enhance Product Quality & Reduce Risks:

The economic and reputational cost of product recalls or failures are often high. Manufacturers with solid and established quality programs consistently meet the requisite product specifications.

Companies with reasonable quality procedures are less likely to have product problems such as mistakes or recalls. This helps to make things safer for both the supplier and the company that uses their products.

One advantage of these procedures is that any problems can be spotted early on. This means that the team can fix them before they become bigger issues.

2. Gain Production Efficiencies:

A robust system for checking and ensuring quality can significantly affect how smoothly things run during production and distribution. It helps everything move faster and more efficiently, from start to finish.

Effective programs usually keep track of much information, sometimes even in real time. This data helps people who run the programs make intelligent decisions based on up-to-date and precise information.

With this data, manufacturers can identify potential quality issues along the production line and resolve them promptly.

A robust quality program also minimizes waste generation, saving time and money for salvaging off-spec or defective products. These efficiency gains result in optimized operations and consistent quality. It saves significant time and money for the manufacturer and customer.

3. Garner Customer Loyalty:

When a company can consistently make high-quality products, they become someone that customers can rely on and trust. This means they have sound systems to ensure every product they make is as good as the last one.

When products meet or exceed customer expectations, you get repeat business. Customer loyalty and a long-term partnership benefits both the manufacturer and the customer. When a company can rely on its supply chain, it suits everyone involved.

The manufacturer benefits from a steady stream of projects and referrals, which helps build a better reputation. And the customer benefits from knowing they can count on their supply chain to provide what they need when needed.

It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
