How to report defects in Manufacturing?

Immediate defect reporting with a smartwatch

Quality assurance in manufacturing

In case production breakdowns or defects occur, a timely information to the shopfloor management about the defect and its root causes is important. This ensures that corrective actions can be initiated. Very often, Quality control in manufacturing is only done at the end of a production process resulting in inefficiencies.

Defect reporting is done manually

Most factories still report defects manually using paper-based forms. This is a time-consuming and error-prone process. As a result, the initiation of corrective actions takes very long.

Missing link between engineering and production

Effective quality control must not only include Operators monitoring the process and ensuring that there is little variation. It must also hold Engineers in the loop to ensure that the product design is monitored for issues.
