Today’s automobiles incorporate increasingly complex technology to meet the demands of global customers. Automotive OEMs, Tier 1, Tier 2, and other suppliers in the Automotive industry face:
InfinityQS® Statistical Process Control (SPC) software provides an enterprise-wide, single solution that enables Automotive quality managers to accomplish these goals.
InfinityQS enables real-time data collection and analysis on the shop floor, enabling early detection of problems so operators can take action to prevent defects and nonconformities. Early prevention reduces scrap, rework, downtime, warranty claims, and recalls—and drives significant bottom-line savings.
By dramatically reducing process variation, InfinityQS users reduce their warranty-claim and recall risk, and prevent brand damage. And InfinityQS Lot Genealogy & Reporting minimizes recall costs by enabling track-and-trace of incoming material lot codes throughout manufacturing operations. Based on these cost reductions and others, you’ll be able to demonstrate a quick return on investment.
Legacy data collection and spreadsheet-based applications can’t get the job done. Today’s quality managers need real-time, accurate data that is visible from the production floor to the corner office.
Quality management in the Automotive industry requires visibility within plants and across multiple facilities, often on a global basis, to:
InfinityQS software provides these capabilities, and with our cloud-based solutions, Automotive OEMs and tier suppliers gain real-time visibility into their suppliers’ shop floor quality data before nonconforming product even ships. This enhanced level of supplier monitoring can:
Eliminate source inspections and acceptance sampling
Provide additional cost savings
Compliance with government safety standards and ISO requirements for Quality Management systems is a given for Automotive suppliers and manufacturers. InfinityQS software provides quality managers with real-time documentation and reporting to:
