**TIP**- for inspection to run smoothly, it is essential that enough time is allocated. Always plan for the worst-case scenario. What if a supplier delays an inspection? Or, the result of the inspection is a "Fail" due to loading nonconformities? Try to plan for sufficient days between the inspection date and the shipping date. Always Plan for the unexpected!!
