Controls - Inspection
The Inspection symbol Inspection symbol tells you that the item is being checked to see if it is right (correct, complete within standard, etc...). A Decision Point typically follows an Inspection symbol, with at least one of the alternatives shown as a dotted line. A dotted line represents a Correction or Rejection routine.  As with all the Graham Symbols, control steps are identified for a SPECIFIC document / item.
If multiple items/steps represent a control, that's easily displayed as well. Simply draw a frame around the objects... and link from the frame (or from any individual symbol) to a Controls Matrix.
