24 October: Zero defect manufacturing

On Thursday 24 of October 2019, the Manufuture ZDM Sub Platform is hosting the Zero defect manufacturing workshop. This event brings together key stakeholders that will shape the future landscape of European manufacturing.

Traditional six-sigma techniques adopted in industry show strong limitations in highly turbulent, variable and changeable production contexts, characterized by small batch productions, customized, or even one-of-a-kind products, and in-line product inspections. Zero-defects manufacturing (ZDM) or is an emerging paradigm aiming at going beyond traditional six-sigma approaches in highly technology-intensive and strategic manufacturing sectors through knowledge-based approaches. It’s about “first time right, and always right”. ZDM brings most added-value and benefits at mass customisation and one-of-a-kind production as well as at complex and changeable manufacturing contexts. ZDM can radically increase productivity at multi-stage/single-stage levels and can bring system-level improvements at shop floor.ZDM puts together monitoring and control, inter-stage correlations, multi-sensor information, and advanced analytics, in order to act on defects repair, in-line reworks and proactive prevention.
