Cost & Defects

About the Course:

Manufacturing Defects are flaws or irregularities in products arising from errors in Production. When the manufacturing process goes awry, the resulting products may fail to meet the manufacturer’s own design specification standards. If such a product escapes the manufacturer’s quality controls, its flawed condition may lead to its failure during use, to an accident, and possibly to an injury to the user or another.

In general,manufacturers and other suppliers are liable for injuries caused by manufacturing defects in products that they sell. Increase in Defects will lead to increase in the organization’s operating cost. Small defects and manufacturing variations can become costly for any company. Several companies have begun implementing different lean manufacturing approaches to reduce manufacturing variations and defects.

Some of the common methods include Six Sigma, Total Quality Control, and the 5 “S”Methodology.Most of the common methodologies in the market require a tool that allows Managers and Executives to perform data collection,measure and analyze the Defects data quick. Microsoft Excel has become a tool that some of these methods recommends.The sample templates have been widely distributed to assist the manufacturing people in their data collection and data analysis.

However, most of the users still do not have sufficient knowledge of the latest functionalities in MS Excel. Financial budgeting can be easily done when Management is able to see real figures being transformed into analytical results with the power of MS Excel.
