IMPROVES MANUFACTURING QUALITY
THROUGH PROCESS ERROR PROOFING
Successful manufacturers are driven to build high-quality products. Quality management and error proofing encompasses a broad range of concerns including: preventing defects from ever occurring, reducing product variation through tighter controls and improved communication, and ensuring proper components are used/labeled throughout the assembly process – all of which ensure each part is built to its design specifications, on-time, the first time.
With ASSIST™, the benefits of six-sigma quality include increased customer satisfaction and loyalty, supplier/regulatory compliance, labor savings and improved asset utilization through the reduction of rework, and cost savings through the avoidance of complaints and warranty claims. Total quality management applies to nearly all assembly or fabrication scenarios and usually involves the integration of information from a myriad of dissimilar shop floor technologies and business software applications. Regardless of the challenge, IGear’s proven ASSIST™ software product ensures a zero defect manufacturing process.
