Quality firewalls can also be called “fire wall”, or in the US, “on sort process”. Are based on unit checking of components against quality criteria by one or more persons before these components are assembled on a production line. In the automotive industry, there are specialised companies (Sorting Company) that are dedicated solely to this type of activity.
These are companies that have teams of people dedicated to checking parts and their defects. Their services are outsourced when one or more quality problems arise in a company and 100% of the material needs to be checked and the company in question does not have the personnel to dedicate to this task. OEMs also impose these companies on Tier 1s when they do not trust the checks performed by Tier 1 personnel.
