How We Reduce Frequency of Manufacturing Errors Using Technology

Rework is maddening and wastes time, money and resources for manufacturing companies. Fortunately, it can be virtually eliminated through lean principles. If your goal is to reduce rework, it’s essential to focus on three areas: 

In our previous article, we discussed how Smart Klaus technology can be used to improve Incoming Goods Inspection. In this entry, we’ll explore how it can be used to improve the assembly process.

Creating a Smoother Assembly Process

Smart Klaus is a camera-based support system used during assembly and end-of-line inspection. Essentially, the Smart Klaus SK Assembly system provides employees with step-by-step instructions while monitoring their assembly to ensure products are constructed correctly every time.

There are many benefits to using this technology, including:

How it Works at a Glance

The Smart Klaus assembly technology operates in four simple steps:

  1. The proper assembly steps are “taught” to the system by a human expert (Roughly a half-day training session).
  2. The system stores and manages the images and instructions captured during the training. It then presents the steps during the assembly while simultaneously recording the employee’s product construction throughout the process.
  3. Smart Klaus monitors the employee’s work and ensures each step is completed correctly before switching over to the next step of the assembly process.
  4. If any mistakes are made, the system will alert the employee and offer a suggestion on how to fix the issue.
