Bay-Sports Mfg. Inc. success is due to the high quality standard of every single product shipped.  
We have achieved total customer satisfaction. Only for this reason one of our largest customers is with us since 23 years.
How could we do this?
By attaching 10 % of our workforce to 3 quality departments. Incoming Quality Control: all components from very carefully selected and permanently controlled suppliers are checked before being accepted for production.
Quality Control in each production department: no component can be released from one department to the next one without being checked and approved by the QC department.
Quality Assurance: finished products are checked following standards before beeing allowed to be shipped.
All departments are organized following the instructions of ISO 9001 and Intertek Manila is checking the factory periodically.  All products are tested following the strictest international standards.
Most employees are working with us for more than 18 years.
Still all employees undergo trainings to be aware of new technics and procedures. These efforts and costs are necessary investments to keep
Bay-Sports Mfg. Inc. most competitive.

Definition of Incoming Quality Control (IQC)

IQC ensures that raw materials from approved suppliers
are in conformance to quality requirements and are released on time to production.

Definition of Quality Control (QC)

QC is a procedure or set of procedures intended to ensure that a
manufactured product adheres to a defined set of quality criteria
or meets the requirements of the customer.

Or: Quality Control makes sure the results of what you have done
are what you expected.
And as DEMING wrote:
"Inspection with the aim of finding the bad ones and throwing them out is too late, ineffective, costly. Quality comes not from inspection but from improvement of the process."

The QC cycle consists of four main steps:

quality planning

data collection
data analysis

Quality planning consists of defining measurable quality objectives.
Quality objectives are specific to the product and they should reflect the customer's requirements.
The collection of data about product characteristics that are relevant to the quality objectives is a key element of quality control.
These data are analysed in order to identify situations that may have adverse effect on quality and may require corrective or preventive action.
The implementation of those actions as indicated by the analysis
of the data is undertaken, including modifications of the product design or the production process, to achieve continuous and sustainable improvement in the product and in customer satisfaction.
The QC department should be independent from any production department and should report to the management.

Often Quality Control is confused with quality Assurances. Thought the two are similar. there are some basic differences.
Quality Control is concerned with the product, while Quality Assurance is process-oriented.

Definition of Quality Assurance (QA)

The operational techniques and individual activities that focus controlling or regulating processes and materials to fulfill requirements for quality.
This process is meant to produce defect-free goods which means being right the first time with no or minimum rework.
Quality Assurance makes sure you are doing the right things, the right way.
The QA team's job is to see that standards, processes and policies are in place and carried out; to recommend and implement improvements to them, and to ensure that the people that need to know about them know about them.
The QA team develops all the planning processes and procedures that try to make sure that the products manufactured by the company will always be of good quality.

The goal is to provide a defect-free product to the customer.
