What is a Product Audit ?

The product audit is the assessment of the final product/service and its qualification for use evaluated versus the intent of the purpose of the product/service. It ensures a thorough inspection of a final product before delivery to a supplier or a customer. By thoroughly inspecting the final product, it aims at improving quality, increasing profitability, and enhancing customer satisfaction and loyalty. It is necessary for a product to go through this process in order to determine if it meets specifications. The Product Audit ultimately serves as a benefit to the suppliers and customers by ensuring quality which results in higher customer satisfaction.
