CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE
Our customer is producing seat models with airbags, more than 20 different variants. As the airbag is classified as a critical item, error-proofing and quality assurance are essential to the assembly process. The higher number of variants in the new airbag model assembly increases the complexity of the task, and the potential for error.
