Zero Defect Manufacturing – Detect, Predict, Prevent, Repair and Manage

Wednesday, 28 November 2018 12:25 - 13:00


  • Early detection of the defect (Z-DETECT)
  • Prediction of the defect generation (Z-PREDICT)
  • Prevention of defect generation by recalibrating the production line (multi-stage), as well as defect propagation in later stages of the production (Z-PREVENT)
  • Reworking/remanufacturing of the product, if this is possible, (Z-REPAIR)
  • Management of the aforementioned strategies through event modelling, KPI (key performance indicators) monitoring and real-time decision support (Z-MANAGE)
