Long-term Firewall Inspection Process
The customer is a Tier 1 supplier and manufacturer of hydraulic and pneumatic pipes. The company employs over 200 people and produces over 1,500,000 parts annually for their customers.
Due to nature of their business, it is extremely important to minimise, or more importantly, eradicate faulty items reaching their major customers.
Nature of service
Bluestones Manufacturing Solutions was engaged to introduce a firewall inspection process which could be carried on within the business after the initial project was completed.
The target of the project was to protect major customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from quality spills.
- Set up firewall inspection with supplier processes
- Collect and collate data sets
- Issue daily reports to supplier quality department to enable effective problem solving
- Update tracking boards
Over the course of the project, which lasted two years, there were no quality escapes to any of the manufacturer’s major customers. The firewall inspection process was implemented successfully and continues to be used by our customer.
