Advantages to Systematic Quality Evaluation in a New Product Launch
Both OEMs and Suppliers put significant resources toward that day when a new component is finally ready to ship for installation. Systematic priorities for identifying and rectifying quality issues out of the gate help eliminate costly surprises and unwanted delays, maintaining assembly processes on time and on budget. This same systematic approach can serve as a framework for evaluating issues with existing parts.
Think your quality assessment process is working and your current product catalog is issue free? Think again. Quality Liaison Services of North America, Inc. recently documented higher than normal percentages of nonconformities among multiple suppliers over the course of a year. And issues are usually uncovered at extremely inopportune moments. Working with a third party to assess and monitor the process, is one way to integrate best practices throughout development and maintain high standards throughout production. It can also serve to remedy situations which may otherwise interrupt production and increase cost.
