Hi all, I am not sure if this has been asked before (and apologies if it is a duplicate), but I am wondering which department is responsible for coming up with the technical quality inspection procedures and methods during manufacturing (such as welding inspection, electrical testing, hydraulic testing, non-destructive testing, dimensional measurement, etc)? In general, it is assumed that the Quality department is responsible for preparing the inspection procedures, but all inspection procedures require technical and engineering knowledge and background to know how to inspect and what to inspect. Quality does not necessarily have this technical knowledge (i.e. electrical, mechanical, thermodynamic, etc). Quality individuals do not usually have engineering experience. So who is ultimately responsible for writing the inspection procedures?
