Inline Real-Time Quality Measurement Means "No Defective Parts" Shipped to End Users

Automotive industry parts and assembly quality standards have moved from sigma level sampling to zero defect requirements. This can be achieved through a combination of containment through 100% inspections (eliminating bad parts) and correction through immediate feedback and adjustment. Manufacturers of critical parts and assemblies such as airbag, wheel bearing and piston have now achieved this...
