CHALLENGE
CHALLENGE
Encountering over 624 scrapped parts per year on a single station in their manufacturing process, the plant was forced to invest in additional temporary manpower dedicated to product inspection.

This additional manpower added a cost of $60,000 per year to address costly scrapped parts, with little insight into the root cause of the problem. Additionally, misplaced or missing fasteners were leading to increases in warranty claims.
