What does a Quality Auditor do?

Inspect, test, sort, sample, or weigh nonagricultural raw materials or processed, machined, fabricated, or assembled parts or products for defects, wear, and deviations from specifications. May use precision measuring instruments and complex test equipment.

What are the Main Tasks of a Quality Auditor?

  • Discard or reject products, materials, or equipment not meeting specifications.
  • Analyze and interpret blueprints, data, manuals, and other materials to determine specifications, inspection and testing procedures, adjustment and certification methods, formulas, and measuring instruments required.
  • Inspect, test, or measure materials, products, installations, or work for conformance to specifications.
  • Notify supervisors and other personnel of production problems, and assist in identifying and correcting these problems.
  • Discuss inspection results with those responsible for products, and recommend necessary corrective actions.
  • Record inspection or test data, such as weights, temperatures, grades, or moisture content, and quantities inspected or graded.
  • Mark items with details such as grade or acceptance-rejection status.
  • Observe and monitor production operations and equipment to ensure conformance to specifications and make or order necessary process or assembly adjustments.
  • Measure dimensions of products to verify conformance to specifications, using measuring instruments such as rulers, calipers, gauges, or micrometers.
  • Analyze test data, making computations as necessary, to determine test results.
  • Collect or select samples for testing or for use as models.
  • Check arriving materials to ensure that they match purchase orders and submit discrepancy reports when problems are found.
  • Compare colors, shapes, textures, or grades of products or materials with color charts, templates, or samples to verify conformance to standards.
  • Write test or inspection reports describing results, recommendations, or needed repairs.
  • Read dials or meters to verify that equipment is functioning at specified levels.
  • Remove defects, such as chips, burrs, or lap corroded or pitted surfaces.
  • Adjust, clean, or repair products or processing equipment to correct defects found during inspections.
  • Clean, maintain, repair, and calibrate measuring instruments and test equipment such as dial indicators, fixed gauges, and height gauges.
  • Stack and arrange tested products for further processing, shipping, or packaging and transport products to other work stations as necessary.
  • Fabricate, install, position, or connect components, parts, finished products, or instruments for testing or operational purposes.
  • Supervise testing or drilling activities.
  • Grade, classify, or sort products according to sizes, weights, colors, or other specifications.
  • Position products, components, or parts for testing, or direct other workers to position them.
  • Make minor adjustments to equipment, such as turning setscrews to calibrate instruments to required tolerances.
  • Set controls, start and monitor machines that automatically measure, sort, or inspect products.
  • Interpret legal requirements, provide safety information, or recommend compliance procedures to contractors, craft workers, engineers, or property owners.
  • Compute defect percentages or averages, using formulas and calculators, and prepare reports of inspection or test findings.
  • Weigh materials, products, containers, or samples to verify packaging weights and ingredient quantities, or to determine sorting.
  • Administer tests to engineers and operators to assess whether they are qualified to use equipment.
  • Disassemble defective parts and components, such as inaccurate or worn gauges and measuring instruments, using hand tools.
  • Compute usable amounts of items in shipments and determine prices, based on quantities and grade assessments.
  • Inspect or test cleantech or green technology parts, products, or installations, such as fuel cells, solar panels, or air quality devices, for conformance to specifications or standards.
  • Inspect or test raw materials, parts, or products to determine compliance with environmental standards.
