“We have dealt with Zenddu for a number of years now and highly recommend any of their products. They are honest and trustworthy. We bought products from another supplier in Indonesia and had a really bad experience. We nearly lost a 20,000 USD deposit by trusting a wrong supplier who was 4 months late on delivery and never replying to our emails or calls. Zenddu took over the control of the order as a favour to help us and got it completed and shipped. All the products we have bought from Zenddu are of the highest quality, and how they keep us updated about our orders production is beyond excellent”

Understanding the Importance of Furniture Quality Control Inspections and Audits to Ensure Product Quality

Buying products from a foreign country can be very risky.

Many comments we hear from our customers about the problems they have faced in the past with other suppliers have included;  The quality was not good, late deliveries, language miscommunication problems, specifications were wrong, even the goods were never delivered, the list goes on.

Furniture inspections play a vital role and help to ensure our customer’s satisfaction. Our inspections help identify and rectify any defects or flaws in furniture products, ensuring that only perfect items using quality materials reach the market.

By conducting thorough QC inspections, we can meet industry standards and regulations. This not only helps build trust with our customers but also ensures that our furniture is safe, durable, and of the highest quality.

Quality Control in Furniture Manufacturing and How to Avoid Poor Quality

When it comes to furniture production, there are some key factors that play a crucial role in ensuring high-quality products in the furniture industry.

The manufacturing process is a complex journey, starting with the selection of quality raw materials and ending with the production of furniture items. Understanding the entire process is crucial to improving the quality of furniture pieces and reducing the risk of producing faulty furniture. We are always educating our craftsmen on how to improve product quality and make sure that our furniture is of the highest quality and meet quality standards.

Implementing Effective Quality Standards to Reduce Quality Issues and Furniture Defects

Quality control is a critical part of furniture production, to ensure that your furniture is sent in perfect condition. We follow this quality control system which is the best practice to ensure the quality requirements used in the manufacturing meet the highest standards.

1. Pre-Production Quality Assurance

When you place an order our admin staff will send the order to our sub-contract craftsmen to start production. 

They call them and speak to them in their local language, normally either in Indonesian, Javanese or Balinese languages to go through your order.

They check the craftsmen’s understanding of the product, and the quantities to be made, and ensure that the furniture product specifications and sizes are correct. Inspection of materials to be used and any special request you have asked for every piece of furniture are fully understood.

This is not a quick call, but a thorough conversation and calls have been known to last 3 to 4 hours to discuss everything with the craftsmen.

Performing a thorough pre-production procedure is a crucial part of production. It helps to identify any potential quality issues, or misunderstandings and ensure that the final product meets the required specifications.

2. Production

The time the manufacturing takes really depends on the quantities and how difficult the items are to make. Normally a 40ft container will take about  6 – 8 weeks as a guide. 

Our admin staff will stay in contact with the craftsmen throughout the order and get weekly updates on how the order is progressing to keep the production on track for the estimated completion date.

During the manufacturing one of our quality inspectors, will visit the craftsmen to inspect the quality of workmanship, check the progress of your order, check for any defects, inspection of raw materials and take photographs and videos of the production.

However, if the production is too far away then we ask the craftsmen to send pictures and videos of the production, which we then send to you to keep you updated with how things are going.

 By checking each product we can identify any flaws or defects that may affect the final quality of the products.

We use an inspection checklist to focus on checking the materials used meet the correct quality, the assembly process, and the overall finish of the furniture pieces. By conducting regular inspections, we can ensure that the products meet the desired quality standards.

3. Post-Production

When your order is finished the final inspection is done before packing. This is when quality control is essential Our QC engineers will go and visit the craftsmen and do a full furniture inspection of your order. We don’t do a partial inspection like many third-party quality control companies offering a QC service, but a full 100% inspection of every product.

The products are first counted to make sure the correct quantities have been made. Sizes. specifications and any special requests are checked that they are correct. With wooden furniture, we do a moisture test to check the moisture level of the wood. 

A physical inspection is done for defects, scratches etc. We work on a zero-tolerance policy where all goods must be 100% perfect to be passed.

For any goods we reject the craftsmen will rework the items, we keep repeating this process until we get a 100% pass.  

Photographs and videos are taken of the products and sent to you for approval.

In the unlikely event, we get a situation where the goods can’t be fixed in time, we will contact you immediately and together we can decide the best course of action. Obviously, this depends on what the problem is and how many.

Common Challenges in Furniture Product Inspections

1. The complexity of furniture designs and construction techniques can pose challenges in QC inspections. It is important for inspectors to have a thorough understanding of the design and construction methods to effectively identify any defects or flaws.

2. Ensuring consistency in colour, finish, and texture across different batches of furniture can be challenging. Variations in materials, production processes, and environmental conditions. As Indonesia is a tropical country with a rainy season the time of the year can affect drying times and the final appearance of furniture products.

3. Identifying and addressing hidden defects or flaws can be difficult. Some defects may not be immediately visible and require meticulous inspection techniques such as using specialized tools such as water content meters for wooden furniture.

4. The age of the raw materials can also cause challenges, especially with wood. The colour of wood from a young tree will normally be a lot lighter than that from an older tree. Younger wood normally will have a higher moisture content than older.

Streamlining the Furniture Manufacturing Process

Streamlining the production process is crucial for increasing productivity and cost efficiency. Here are some strategies to optimize the process:

1. Utilize Lean Manufacturing Principles

Implementing lean manufacturing principles helps eliminate waste and improve efficiency in furniture production. By identifying and eliminating non-value-added activities, resources can be allocated more effectively, resulting in reduced lead times and improved overall productivity.

2. Efficient Supply Chain Management

An efficient supply chain is essential for a smooth furniture manufacturing process. Proper coordination and communication with our craftsmen ensure timely delivery of raw materials, reducing production delays. Additionally, effective inventory management practices prevent stockouts or overstocking, minimizing costs and maximizing production efficiency.

3. Collaboration and Communication

Strong collaboration and communication between different departments and teams involved in the furniture manufacturing process are vital for streamlining operations. Clear communication channels, regular meetings, and cross-functional teamwork help ensure everyone is aligned with production goals, leading to improved efficiency and reduced delays.
