Supply Chain Controls and Checks
Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss supply chain issues and controlling potential quality excursions
- Each component supplier has multiple suppliers that provide materials to build the components. It can be extremely difficult to monitor the many levels of supply chains and their long chain of suppliers.
- Sometimes the specifications in assembly drawings are generically specified to a default tolerance and assumed to be sufficient without detailed analysis.
- Fred discusses the specifications for car dashboards and specifications of reflectivity but still it is difficult make sure it is good for all potential sunlight conditions.
Enjoy an episode of Speaking of Reliability. Where you can join friends as they discuss reliability topics. Join us as we discuss topics ranging from design for reliability techniques to field data analysis approaches.
