  1. It is over simplified.
    Fabric inspection happens in two places.
    At Mills:
    100% inspection at mills prior to dispatch. Here the flow is Checking Physicals in terms of fabric weight and shrinkage etc before inspection (if the fabric passes lab test then only the material is forwarded to inspection). After inspection, the qualified rolls undergo shade grouping.
    At Factory:
    Here the inspection is done as a sampling process to verify supply is in confirmation using AQL.
    The other activities of Shrinkage and Shade grouping is done on all roles and part of a Garment making process.
