The cost of each service is calculated based on the number of inspectors and days of inspection needed: we call it man-day, e.g. 1 man-day means 1 inspector working for 1 day. Most inspections require 1 man-day, but it can be varied depending on the product complexity, sample size to be inspected, number of items to be inspected, factory location as well as your special requirements, if any.
