Best Manufacturing Practices for Defect Prevention

Date : 18 to 19 November, 2019

@ BIEC, 10th Mile, Tumkur Road, Madavara Post, Bangalore


A defect in a product or service can have multiple undesirable effects like increasing own cost of products and services, delivery failure, making it unfit for use, loss of business and serious accidents. Hence a defect depending on its severity, can have far reaching undesirable consequences.

Hence Prevention is always better than Detection. Detection is like a post-mortem on an already dead body which doesn’t add any value to either producer or customer. We can’t recover the loss that have already incurred. That is why global leaders like Toyota invest their maximum efforts on defect prevention and also promote ‘stop and fix’ as a culture.

Customers always ask for right products at right time with competitive prices. With defect, that is not possible.

Cost is inversely proportional to Quality. An organization who doesn’t focus enough on prevention, can lose more than 25% of Sales value due to internal and external quality related failure cost. A quality complaint can lead to multiple ripple effects that can impact 10 X or more than just the replacement cost.

It is all the more imperative today when many organizations are struggling for profitability and Government of India is prioritizing ‘Make in India’ for both local consumptions and global supplies.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on "Best Manufacturing Practices for Defects Prevention" on 18 and 19 November 2019 at Bangalore.

Focus Areas

  • Definition of Defect and Defective. Causes of defects
  • How to statistically measure defect level. Different Metrics

  • Effective New Product development process
  • FMEA - Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (with both Design and Process FMEA examples)
  • SPC - Statistical Process Control
  • Control Plan
  • MSA – Measurement System Analysis
  • Poka-yoke (Mistake proofing)
  • Quality and Cost

Key Take Aways
