Asset-i Case Study: Husqvarna – QA Audit System

1 Apr 2018

Husqvarna use Asset-i (inspection module) to ensure best Quality Control practice on factory shop floor.

Husqvarna has an 44,000 square meters distribution centre and factory with 65 injection moulding presses in Newton Aycliffe where components are made for their own products and for the automotive industry. The detrimental costs of manufacturing poor quality parts make it imperative that all parts made are to the same high consistent quality.
The previous system required the QA inspectors to record reported production issues manually on paper before retrospectively updating a PC based Access Database. Whilst this system provided the information required, due to its manual nature and reliance on the QA inspectors updating it, the data was not always readily available and data entry was time consuming.

The challenge therefore was to revolutionise the QA inspection on the shop floor. ExPD is a supplier of Auto ID solutions, trading for over 25 years. Having previous experience of dealing with factory environments enabled ExPD to understand the importance of the Husqvarna challenges. Working in conjunction with Husqvarna, ExPD constructed a solution based on their standard Asset-i (inspection module) product, with specific mobile device inspection processes built to meet the exact business needs.

The new Asset-i system has been deployed across all of the moulding shop at the Newton Aycliffe site – During the development of the system, ExPD worked closely with Mark Hugill the Senior Quality Engineer at Husqvarna to ensure the system provides the functionality and information required.

Mark Hugill commented, “implementing a real-time QA system into our process was always going to be challenge, and whilst it wasn’t an instant fix, working with ExPD we have been able to get it exactly right, it now meets the QA challenges”, Mark continued, “since the initial roll out, we have added further functionality, ExPD have been on hand to help all the way, it’s a real partnership”.
