How we improved the way factory produces frying pans
Identify quality issue
The first step of our constant effort to improve production quality is to identify a problem. In this example, the supplier kept putting out frying pans with a non centered logo, a defect we at JLC identified immediately.
Once an issue is spotted, we go through a phase of comparing default products with the approved sample.
After analysing the defect and investing on the root cause, we find out that there is a poor positioning of the logo on the printing plate. Workers adjust the logo by the eye leading to wrong printing.
We then come up with a solution. Use new square PE plate with dimensions following the same diameter of the product bottom.
The pans are now produced with a logo perfectly centered.
