Optimization of quality control for produced mechanic components

Challenge

Task

  • optimization of quality control for produced mechanic components

Objective

  • manage increasing complexity of components in quality assurance, no defective parts to customer
  • maintain competitive position of German production locations

Framework

  • various halls, plants and countries
  • many systems with outdated hardware
  • hard cycle-time requirements

Solution
