Every employee in every company wants to produce defect-free products but there are rare times when few defective products get produced. Propel Industries is working towards zero-defect products for which defect tracking is important.
What is defect tracking system?
The product quality engineer can use the defect tracking system on a daily basis to understand the defects in the produced components and take necessary steps. This system will also help process owners to monitor the production line closely and bring it to zero-defect preposition.
Why is defect tracking system important?
Industry experts would agree that parameters should be measured continuously so that issues can be controlled. Resolving a complaint without database is very difficult and an effective defect tracking system adds great value to the database.
At times when the team is met with untoward professional challenge to resolve an issue related to the product, the defect tracking system would be highly useful to the cross-functional teams to understand what and where to focus on.
A good defect tracking system will help resolve many similar issues and rectify it in the line of production.
Benefits to the organization
An effective defect tracking system is extremely useful as the defects are identified in the very beginning i.e., during the manufacturing process itself.
The analysis, thus taken up will help the cross-functional teams and shop floor engineers to move towards product improvement and get ‘first time right’ products.
We would be able to release defect-free products on time, which is always the goal of Propel Industries.
