Defect Classification – During Final/Inline Inspection (Stitching Defects)

During final inspection many times we got some defects. All the defect are not same and not have the same importance. Out of these defect some are major and some defect is minor.

Many times we become confused to take a decision that, which is major and which minor. Today I am going to share some information with all of you regarding this issue. Also, I am going to share a list defects with major and minor classification. In this regards please note, these classifications are not fixed, it can be varied based on buyer view.

Major Defect: Anything which adversely affects the appearance, performance, including fit or customer satisfaction to a degree that would provide a discerning customer with justification for non-purchase, a return or complaint .

Minor Defect: Any variation from a standard which is not sufficient in degree to be classified as major
