Quality Control in the Automotive Industry
In the first half of 2021, more than 18.5 million vehicles in the US were recalled due to defects in manufacturing. That’s more than twice as many recalls than new vehicles sold over the same period.
It’s more important than ever for automotive suppliers to focus on quality control. That’s where a solid supply chain comes into play.
When an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) obtains components from a reliable supplier, they are protecting the quality of the end product. Here’s more information about advancements in OEM automotive quality control.
Automotive Advancements In Quality Control
Quality control (QC) is essential in the automotive industry, where mistakes can cost lives. Automotive parts manufacturers are focused on producing at high volumes with a low failure rate. Vehicle manufacturers rely on their suppliers to provide them with high-quality components.
Advancements in QC include using digital technology to find and track defects in products. This solves problems before manufacture or delivery to the OEM.
Some manufacturers have tried to produce parts at a lower cost by cutting corners. The push to produce high volumes can allow a defect to occur in a large number of products in a short time. This can result in many recalls or substandard products.
The effect of these failures is costly. Substandard products affect a company’s reputation and can impact sales for years. Quality control reduces waste and maintains a high level of productivity.
Digital Technology Improves Quality
Art to Part is the process of taking a design from the initial concept through production. Using 3D technology, a design can move through engineering and testing to reach the prototype stage faster.
Mayco International uses this concept to test the product earlier. That gets it to the manufacturing stage with a higher level of quality. They’re focused on compliance and excellence in their operations, using industry best practices.
