What are the root causes for product failures due to faulty product assembly

About 1% of EquipmentCo.’s deliveries led to out-of-box failures (OBF). OBF is the failure of equipment after it is delivered to the customer. This resulted in customer dissatisfaction and increased delivery costs. EquipmentCo. had conducted root cause analysis on the origin of OBFs and implemented corrective actions. But the OBFs had not reduced substantially. Therefore, EquipmentCo. sought to identify the root cause of these failures as well as identify solutions.

  2. 2. KEY STATS Solutions prototyped for process improvement Estimated reduction in the out-of-box failures 3 75%
  3. 3. PROBLEM About 1% of EquipmentCo.’s deliveries led to out-of-box failures (OBF). OBF is the failure of equipment after it is delivered to the customer. This resulted in customer dissatisfaction and increased delivery costs. Therefore, EquipmentCo. sought to identify the root cause of these failures as well as identify solutions.
  4. 4. APPROACH – PHASE I Analyse current workflow to hypothesis failure root causes Sprintly team identified three types of OBFs: wrong product delivery, excess product delivery, incomplete order. The ‘wrong product’ deliveries were most common. Next, the team analyzed and mapped the current process to list all possible error areas.
  5. 5. Process improvements – reorganizing the space, one order flow implementation or color-coding stickers etc. Modification of documentations Technical solutions – barcode scanner or RFID to scan each item. APPROACH – PHASE II Preliminary recommendations based on listed process issues
  6. 6. APPROACH – PHASE III Solution detailing and KPIs Created a new process map in conjunction with EquipmentCo.’s current process. This process map also listed additional new equipment requirements and system changes for material flow. Additionally, the Listed possible failures and remedies for the recommended solutions.
  7. 7. RESULT Sprintly team identified the issue areas in EquipmentCo.’s current logistic process that led to equipment failures. Based on this study Sprintly team was able to deliver concrete change requirements to EquipmentCo. They piloted the recommended solution and 75% of OBFs could be reduced over the course of 3-6months.
