I keep on asking questions
The reels of plastic foil come in and wheigh about 600 to 700kg.
Since this is our only raw material, I want to have samples of every batch that is delivered and check some parameters like color, thickness, defects, ...
Would that be overkill? Or is it expected and common in the industry to take samples of every delivery and checking it? On the other side, taking them is a real pain in the ass. Takes 4 min. per sample to take and most of the time there are about 3 different products per delivery. Also, on a sample of 10x30cm, there is nothing much to test on besides color and thickness and a few defects. If any defects are present, most of them or somewhere in the reel.
How do you guys handle this? You take samples from each delivery and check? Or do you do it every X deliveries?
