At Bureau Veritas, we understand the challenges faced by brands and retailers in the supply chain department. To help you overcome these obstacles, we are proud to introduce our new service - the Modular Technical Factory Assessment (MTFA).
This innovative Factory Audit solution does not only cover the generic factory assessment aspects like Good Management Practice (GMP), Process Control, and Product Control, but also offers exclusive modules for Quality Management Systems (QMS) and Capability & Capacity Assessment (Product-Specific Audits) tailored to your needs and your product categories.
What Sets Modular Technical Factory Assessment Apart?
Comprehensive Factory Assessment
MTFA reviews the factory's management systems in accordance with industry best practices, ensuring a thorough evaluation of your manufacturing partners.
The MTFA offers exclusive module for QMS, where we deep dive into the quality management procedures and their degree of implementation, identifying areas for improvement and streamlining processes.
Wide Range of Industries
We cater to various industries, including Apparel and Home Textiles, Yarn & Fabric, Footwear, General Hardgoods, Toys, Furniture, Electrical & Electronics, Fine Jewelry, Leather Processing, Synthetic Yarn Processing (Texturizing & Dyeing), and Synthetic Yarn Melt Spinning Process.
The MTFA service also offers a product-specific Capability & Capacity Assessment tailored to your product categories, assessing each stage of the production process for procedural implementation and execution to ensure optimal quality and efficiency.
The Importance of having Product-Specific Modules in Factory Assessment
Product-Specific Modules are critical because each product category has its unique requirements, standards, and manufacturing processes. A generic, non-product specific factory assessment may overlook critical aspects of the production process that are specific to a particular product category.
