Our first step for offline inspection was to randomly select around 50 samples from those ready to inspect. If it was a final inspection, we chose various pre-purchase order boxes to open and inspect before they are shipped to stores.
From there, we compared the samples to the pre-approved sample that was agreed upon between the Technical Designers at Kohl’s and L&F Quality Inspectors.
We would do this by measuring sections of the garments such as arms-eye, neckline, waistline, sleeve length and bust. There were various guidelines that we would use to check whether the garment was approved to ship or not. Based upon the common errors, we were able to determine if their was inconsistency in garment production.
