Issues Assessing Quality in Assembly
Assembly inspections are complex because many components and sub-assemblies must come together and be installed correctly within a designated TAKT Time. The collection of, and reaction to, critical inspection data needs to be orchestrated in tandem with your assembly process. But, with a paper-based inspection many issues can arise.
Missed and poorly documented quality issues often result in added costs as non-conforming units are passed along to downstream processes where value is added. Further complicating the process flow and data collection is the routing of non-conforming units in and out of the standard flow to repair loops and offline audit stations.
A digital quality solution can mitigate many of the problems that come with a paper-based inspection and help you to verify the critical quality aspects of your assembly at each verification/quality gate.
