“Påvisa lönsamheten med förebyggande kvalitetsåtgärder, med hjälp av studier i produktionen” (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Ett producerande företag som saknar en kvalitetsstrategi inom organisationen, eller inte prioriterar kvalitetsåtgärder kommer i det närmsta påverkas av följderna eller lider redan av kvalitetsproblem, såväl internt men också externt. Ett företag kan märka av dessa kvalitetsproblem i form av obrukbara produkter och kundklagomål. Med externa problem menas det senare exemplet, när en produkt lämnat den interna produktionsprocessen och nått slutkunden. Den här studien omfattar framför allt fall områdena produktion och montering med tillhörande logistikprocesser. Studien skall visa exempel på olika förebyggande kvalitetsåtgärder och argumentera olika scenarier hur dessa kan användas i praktiken. Rekommenderade utbildningsområden för företag diskuteras. Studien skall kunna tillämpas som studiematerial med motivationen att följa upp och adressera kvalitetskostnader, samt att visa på följderna av kvalitetsproblem.
