Our work improving processes to help the environment
In 2015, we had the opportunity to solve the end quality of assembled luxury cars.
The company lost a very large amount of money during the assembly of their previous new model. It went into production a year before. When the assembled cars came off the production line, most of them failed the quality audit. (I can vouch for this company by confirming to you that they have a very robust quality process.)
During our brief, the programme manager informed us of the problem and the data, to which we had access. What we had to do, was find a solution to their problem. To develop an instrument or an analytical approach. An instrument or method that would prevent assembled cars failing the quality audit.
We had access to all the metrology data of the components for the assembly line, and that of the vehicle bodies.
During the first build of a future vehicle model, we recorded all the defects. Analysed the data. Made modifications. And prepared for the second build.
During the second build, we predicted where the defects would occur. We identified the defects and rectified them in the interim. most of the non-compliances, and rectified in the interim.
We predicted a quality defect on only one vehicle out of 18 vehicles. Predicted before the component left the supplier.
We managed to put in place process improvement methodologies. An assembly process and quality improvement. Thus, we had implemented a lean process and an improved quality process. Saving the company millions by avoiding waste.
Because our work of streamlining the process was so successful. We reduce waste in several areas like the assembly process. The way in which the the metrology data taken. The processing of the data.
In doing so, we reduced waste and unnecessary and inefficient tasks.
This is one of the ways that we can hep you save money. Whether it is for business process improvement, a continuous improvement process,
MAKING THE PROCESS EFFICIENT, SAVING THE COMPANY REVENUE ...
This is an example of the kind of processes that we can improve. Cutting waste, before shipping. Making the process efficient, increasing profit.
