Differences between finished products and semi-finished products: 1, different definitions; 2, different functions and uses; 3, different production degree; 4, different inspection contents; 5, different packaging.
In factories, it’s common to see a pile of finished and semi-finished products, all labeled, so what’s the difference between the two? Let’s give you a specific introduction.
The definitions are different: finished products are products that have undergone all processes, and semi-finished products are generally not completed or only undergo half of the processes.
Different functions and uses: generally finished products can be directly taken to the market for external sales, semi-finished products can not go to sales, can only be used in the next process to continue production.
Different degree of production: the finished product has been completed and all production processes are qualified, but the semi-finished product is only half finished, and other processes or materials are needed to continue processing.
The inspection content is different: the finished product generally needs to check the appearance, performance, accuracy and so on.
Different packaging: finished products are generally need to be packaged independently, and affixed with labels. However, semi-finished products are generally collective packaging.
