Supply Chain Controls and Checks


Kirk and Fred discussing how we can insure we receive outsourced parts meet our requirements when we may not know what variances in specifications will affect your particular system.

Key Points

Join Kirk and Fred as they discuss supply chain issues and controlling potential quality excursions
Topics include:

  • Each component supplier has multiple suppliers that provide materials to build the components. It can be extremely difficult to monitor the many levels of supply chains and their long chain of suppliers.
  • Sometimes the specifications in assembly drawings are generically specified to a default tolerance and assumed to be sufficient without detailed analysis.
  • Fred discusses the specifications for car dashboards and specifications of reflectivity but still it is difficult make sure it is good for all potential sunlight conditions.
