It should be noted that investing in costs in favor of good quality does not mean that the total quality costs increase. Rather, the right investments and optimization of QMS and quality assurance processes should lower quality costs. In addition, to reduce the total cost of quality, a manufacturer is well advised to ensure that the cost of good quality is lower than the cost of poor quality.
By proactively addressing quality from the beginning of the development process for a product or service, the costs of poor quality will also decrease.
One way a manufacturer can lower their quality costs is to incorporate new technologies, such as: B. 3D CMM measurements and automated quality control solutions to perform quality assurance and control tasks.
Despite the initial investment, these solutions are proving extremely valuable in improving the quality of a wide range of products and helping manufacturers meet the multitude of operational challenges associated with quality assurance and control.
Let's take a look at the benefits of the R-Series ™, Creaform's automated 3D scanning solutions, for quality assurance and control. With these solutions, quality assurance and control teams can quickly take 3D measurements of prototypes, parts, and products.
