1.1 GENERAL INTRODUCTION
It is Important at the outset of this study to know exactly what quality control is i.e it is a degree of excellent fitness and elative nature. This is the definition most people have in mind when they think quality people believe generally that “HIGH QUALITY “ is something desirable in itself. Quality is an intricate concept the word is often used to mean superior quality. When we speak of quality merchandise we are not referring it price as the main selling feature and advertisement when mentioned in industrial and purchase quality has in entirely meaning.
Quality is related to suitability and cost (not price) but quality could be low as well as high the right quality may not be the best in the market. Quality meaning in purchasing is related to the function send ultimate cost.
Purchasing executive is in excellent position to contribute to that portion of their company is profits that originate in the area of quality. This is because they can bring about there important types of knowledge, their knowledge of the materials, they bought their knowledge or market or economic change their knowledge of source of supply.
It concept of quality as ordained above could in term be derived into a number of constrains such as finish. Strength design material manufacture and so on and the scale of excellent could be draw up for this in such a way that we can analyses the quality of given it may score well is some respect and badly in other. It may be in incapable of measurement; the researcher is interested in this topic because quality is very biologics business.
1.2 STATEMENT OF GENERAL PROBLEM
Quality control is very important function in every organization effective for formal and efficient material management, but some problem to develop, where the practice is non existence.
Poor and inefficient quality profit less than the rate of organization, this affect the production profit less the rate of organization growth. Also, there is a general believe that no one can inject quality including the process of design stage of a product but the problem encountered in building quality and also they do not make proper provision for a separate quality control standard, this including the method of rating vendors for quality. The research will look into some of the problem and way of solving the problems.
1.3 SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
This researcher is restricted to the Global soap and Detergent and related product situated at Ilorin, Kwara State. This research work will cover the following benefit of quality; determination of quality, inspection concept of quality selection of vendor for quality and also method of rating vendor for quality.

Also time was one of the limitations that late resumption data and incessant instability in Nigeria as a whole had pit short the span of the academic session in Kwara State Polytechnic affected the researcher because the researcher also had the class work load to contain at the same time with the project work load.
1.4 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
