by on Feb.04, 2010, under China QC Inspection Blog

See Paul’s article for a realistic view on manufacturing in China, based on ten years of firsthand experience. He talks about the real risks involved, some of the peculiar nuances such as the roller coaster effect.

While the article may leave you with a sobering view of sourcing from China, you can always talk to us, to learn how QPI can support you to navigate these issues:

Quoted from:  “ChinaEconomicReview.com”:

Q: Quality-control issues have remained a serious issue in China despite government efforts. Now we have another melamine scandal. What is your take on the problem and how do we solve it?
A: Before we get around to solutions, we must have at least some level of discussion on the topic, and before we engage in discussion, we have to admit that there is a serious problem. We can’t say there is no problem, and then jump straight to a solution. There’s too much to discuss, and there’s too much at stake. Just to give a simple example, many people don’t know how to differentiate between different kinds of quality problems. A shipment can be rejected because of a production error, or it can be the fault of willful shenanigans. You have to solve each of these problems differently.”
