Quality Control in Manufacturing

Quality Control in Manufacturing

In manufacturing, quality control is a process that ensures customers receive products free from defects and meet their needs. When done the wrong way, it can put consumers at risk. For example, the recent defect found in Takata airbags resulted in the biggest automotive recall in history. The recall includes almost 69 million airbag inflators and may cost billions of dollars. The recall will last until the end of 2019 and take until 2020 to resolve.

Major recalls like these can be prevented through effective quality control in manufacturing. Some common tools used to support quality control include:

  • Statistical process control (SPC) monitors and controls quality by tracking production metrics. It helps quality managers identify and solve problems before products leave the facility.
  • Six Sigma uses five key principles to ensure products meet customers’ needs and have zero defects.

When supported by lean tools like Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), 5S, and Kaizen, most if not all defects can be eliminated.

Electrical Safety Signs

Electrical Safety Signs

Electrical safety is a major problem in modern workplaces. Each year, OSHA produces a list of their ten most frequently cited violations. General electrical safety requirements show up on that list year after year. While electrical safety involves many different elements, safety signs are often overlooked.

Electrical safety signs communicate important information to workers. They can also be one of the most efficient tools in a facility manager’s toolkit. They’re also required by a variety of laws and standards.

Floor Marking Placement

Floor Marking Placement

Floor marking should be used if there are two or more types of traffic, or as a way to make users aware of safety hazards. Floor marking is used to separate people from hazards, mark aisles and passageways, and establish safe zones and other specific traffic uses.
