Advance Apparel staff conducts these processes. In-line and finished product inspection being the responsibility of the factory. Quality is refined through the entire manufacturing process.
Initially, patternmaking to first sample development is imperative to identify how the garments will look, how the fabrics and trims will work in tandem, and to develop initial fit parameters.
Then, the Pre-production sample highlights any pattern corrections, specification development and trim confirmation in addition to a focus on proper garment construction, to yield a consistency in fit and finish. Pre-production ensures that the entire purchase order will meet the fit measurements in production.
In-line (in-process) quality inspection ensures that every product is constructed identically to the approved pre-production sample. In-line inspection will catch any mistakes in stitching, seams, pressing or label selection and placement as early as possible.
Finished product inspection confirms proper garment construction, focuses on garment appearance, and ensures that the purchase order is finished properly and that all packaging (labels, hangtags, etc.) are applied correctly.
