The importance of quality control is highlighted every couple of years when massive recalls of products bring manufacturing faults to light.
Take the infamous Takata airbag recall earlier this year, where millions of vehicles worldwide had to be fitted with replacement airbags after a design fault resulted in multiple deaths and injuries. In the majority of companies, inspections continue to be carried out manually, yet automated quality control reporting is gaining traction at all kinds of manufacturing businesses.
Manufacturers have always been at the cutting edge of automation in the production line. But paper-based processes still dominate when it comes to inspecting and reporting on products, especially for checks that robots cannot yet make. The process is made faster and smoother when employees can record the results of their checks into an automated quality control Nintex workflow.
