    You missed out a few prepositions and added the verb "were" incorrectly - we use the simple past tense to refer to the specific date/time of an action in the past.

    An alternative is: ... 8600 pcs of the GT589 were passed by inspection - this sentence suggests the inspection team have passed the product, whereas ... 8600 pcs of the GT589 passed inspection - suggests that the product is satisfactory and has met the requirements of the inspection process. They both, essentially, mean the same thing.

    I'm not a teacher.
