"2/3 of total process costs are due to collection and administration of warranty related product data"

End-to-end transparency with up-to-date production information is essential for the efficient handling of complaints during the warranty period and is an indispensable part of the daily business process. Quality engineers not only need 8D reports for complete fault analysis, but are also dependent on various information from various sources, such as:

  • End-of-line test data of the defective components
  • MES data from the production plant
  • Quality documents from global development centres
  • Quality assurance contracts agreed with the supplier

Only after checking the target state of the defective component, it is possible to define effective shutdown measures and implement them in production. However, the information required for this is usually requested manually in personal contact and the provision of this information can take several days under certain circumstances. The longer it takes to obtain data, the more inefficient the entire process of complaint handling and the decision on corrective action in series production. Likewise, potential reclaims to suppliers are delayed and additional costs are incurred.
