2013-05-21: Tom Stewart Receives Ford Global Powertrain Manufacturing Engineering TMM Excellence Award


Tom Stewart, president of our North American subsidiary, Q-DAS Incorporated, has received Ford Motor Company's Global Powertrain Manufacturing Engineering TMM (Technical Maturity Model) Excellence Award for an Operator Control Boards (OCB) Quality Feedback system installed at Ford's engine plant in Cologne, Germany.

 

Tom was part of a team that developed the solution using Q-DBM and M-QIS to consolidate and present critical quality information to machine operators in the plant's cylinder head production area.
The award is one of only 46 conferred worldwide in 2012. In the nominating documents, Ford's Cologne plant management said that the Q-DAS solution has improved quality performance, reduced scrap, and increased operator morale at the plant. The solution consolidates data from eight different 20-page CMM reports and presents it to the operator on a single, prioritized OCB screen.
Prior to installation of the Q-DAS solution, the system included a significant time lag between the machining operation and the CMM lab tests, plus additional time to generate paper reports and deliver them to the operator, and still more time for the operator to read and interpret them. Using the Q-DAS solution, the operator gets virtually instant feedback from the CMM laboratory and is never more than 3 mouse clicks away from resolving any quality issues identified there.
The system warns the operator when parts are approaching an out-of-specification condition and provides access to process data from previous parts which supports corrective action. The Q-DAS software gives operators instant access to diagnostic and corrective information down to the individual tool and operation level.
