Quality control involves employing optimal methodologies, rigorous adherence to defined criteria, and specific standards to ensure flawless product delivery. Stringent quality control measures empower companies to effectively manage expenses, minimise wastage, and safeguard their brand reputation and legal standing in the face of faulty products. The key to successful management of quality control initiatives lies in upholding strict adherence to standardised procedures. Any deviation from these procedures is likely to result in products that do not meet specifications and may cause various forms of wastage. Gathering data regarding part quality proves invaluable in auditing production procedures and confirming the harmony between standardised processes and work instructions, leading to the production of high-quality components while minimising waste.
Factory Flow facilitates the collection of data from both machinery and operators, offering precise insights into cycle times, part counts, and reasons for rejection. This data can be analyzed at machine/cell, operator, and shop floor levels. Quality managers can utilize this data to identify bottlenecks and wasteful practices within the process while ensuring the retention of the required level of quality.
Tracking Downtime: Removing Non Value Added with the Factory Flow ANDON system
The core objective of the Factory Flow Andon system is to facilitate enhanced communication and bolster the exchange of information among manufacturing operators, team leaders, and external technicians whenever a production issue emerges. Moreover, the fundamental principle underpinning the Factory Flow Andon is aimed at curbing production downtime at its origin and preventing its propagation downstream. The concept is centered around early problem detection, recognising that addressing issues promptly is more cost-effective than rectifying them later in the production cycle, particularly within a manufacturing context.
Perfect for companies that are committed to enhancing quality, boosting efficiency, and optimizing day-to-day processes.
