How PDI works in Johari Digital
Pre-dispatch inspection (PDI) ensures that production complies with specifications & terms of the customers as per their purchase order. This process is conducted when at least 80% of the order has been ready & packed for shipping. This inspection is done according to standards of ISO 13485:2016 & US FDA Certified cGMP. Goods are selected and inspected for defects according to the standards and procedures. The inspection procedure follows these steps:
Cleaning of devices involve removing impurities such as fluxes, residues of soldering agents, adhesives and contaminants such as dust and residue from previous manufacturing stages. Cleaning is done with the help of special cleaning agents.
2. Labels and their verification
Labeling is done to ensure that the products are fully accountable and traceable. Johari Digital assures that all products have gone through correct label verification procedure and no product is falsely labelled. Our effective Labeling verification procedure ensures that correct labels are applied with the right date and are readable throughout the product life cycle.
3. First Packing
After labeling verification process, the product is to be packaged in such a way that it complies with the International standards. In First Packing, the device and its accessories are packed individually and assembled together.
4. Inspection and Fill Packing Slip
This stage confirms that the equipment ordered corresponds with quantity and quality requirements. Packaging has been done accordingly to withstand adversities & challenges of transportation. Shipping documentation has been cross-examined.
When the checklist is verified, packing slip is prepared with details mentioned like customer details, invoice number, date, order number, Country of origin, terms of delivery & payment, number & kind of packages, description of goods, declaration and authorized signatory.
5. Final Packing
The main purpose of Final Packing is to protect products and materials during transport, distribution and storage. Special care should be taken regarding handling, packaging & shipping specifications. In final packing, every step must match with the the Domestic & International standards, recommendations & guidelines.
6. Confirmation with “PDI OK” label
When all levels are cleared, devices are labelled with ‘PDI OK’ Label. This sticker ensures that all devices are cleaned and meticulously checked for any damages. We place great importance on guaranteeing the quality of devices prior to transportation.
7. Systematic Inventory Management via SAP
As soon as devices are done with all inspection procedures, the devices with ‘PDI OK’ labels are logged into SAP. The SAP entry confirms that devices are now transferred to Logistics department as Finished Goods (FG). They are now ready to ship anytime.
Main checks performed before dispatch
We customize each inspection to focus on what is important for our customers. We combine and cross-check our standard inspection checklists with customers’ unique product requirement list. Our Pre-Dispatch Inspection (PDI) checklists provide an extensive classification of defects and on-site tests based on international standards – ISO 13485:2016 & US FDA Certified cGMP.
With PDI check, we verify the compliance of the goods to quality standards before shipment to guarantee high customer satisfaction. Following are the major checks performed in the PDI :
Ensure appropriate protection during transportation and cross-checking in accordance with specified requirements.
