Secrets Of The Intelligent Repair Station



“Epidemic”, “one-off” and “patterns” are different classes of defects which each need to be detected quickly, but are treated and managed in different ways.  Without an intelligent and effective repair operation, significant opportunity is lost to be able to control and manage the manufacturing operation avoiding further defects.  In this webinar we will look specifically at the role of an advanced intelligent repair work-station as part of the integrated quality system.  We will discuss how to realize and reduced the cost of repair, achieve faster closed loop feedback and gain the expected results and benefits from closed loop quality management.

What You Will Learn

  • How data capture can replace paper repair tickets
  • The benefits of interactive documentation
  • How defect diagnosis and correct time and cost can be reduced
  • Types of defects with methods of detection, prevention and correction
  • The benefits and opportunities of a reduced repair cycle time
  • The business intelligence opportunity
  • Closing the loop on quality
