Integration of a product audit system

Kirchheim/Teck, Germany - People are the measure of all things. This applies not only when designing car seats, but also to the configuration of processes, information and workplaces. Following the introduction of the combined product audit system Q-FIT, RECARO Automotive Seating, the leading manufacturer of performance seats, has demonstrated convincing successes.
RECARO Automotive Seating can look back on a long tradition of creativity, innovation and technological excellence: The company presented the first sports car seat as long ago as 1965. RECARO also brought out the first retrofittable sports seat, the world‘s lightest vehicle seat, the most innovative commercial vehicle seat, and new sports seats in a modern composite design. RECARO car seats have to meet the toughest requirements – as original equipment or coveted special fittings for privately used vehicles, for frequent drivers in commercial vehicles, and even for professional motor sport drivers.
RECARO has become the benchmark and synonym for quality, safety and intrinsic value. But behind these buzzwords lies a whole philosophy that places people at the centre of all the company‘s endeavours. For car seats are a decisive sensual factor for the driving experience. An extensive point of contact between passengers and the vehicle, they also support the body over long distances, and give not only support and a feeling of security, but also – depending on the weather – warmth or cooling.

With their look, feel, acoustics and smell, they convey brand values such as quality, safety, durability, and also sportiness or comfort, depending on what the manufacturers want in their models. Car seats are a decisive factor in determining how comfortable the occupants feel even after sitting in them for hours on end. Furthermore, they have a safetyrelated protective function that can decide between life and death in an accident.
It is therefore no surprise that RECARO‘s DNA is oriented to integrating innovation, technical excellence and top-class ergonomic design not only into its products, but also into every facet of its corporate culture – which naturally also includes the production division, with its total of around 1,000 employees at six locations in Germany, Poland, Japan, Mexico and the United States.
QQuality:
First-class quality can only be guaranteed with the right testing, measurement and control methods and technologies: From the digital and automatic test planning and test equipment management and integration, the creation of test lists and the actual conducting of the tests, through to administering and processing the test results.
FFailure: At Q-FIT, the modules for production monitoring, as well as the systems for the production control and real-time production monitoring, ensure the fastest possible reaction times when errors occur. The mobile KPI dashboards offer a particularly good overview with an immediate information flow for freely selectable user groups.
IIssue:
The correct handling of problems in the production includes a wide variety of tools such as the automated creation of issues from your own production, the management of customer complaints, tools for cause analysis, statistics and data summaries, as well as a quality alarm for recurring problems.
TTracing:
The documentation of all the production orders, production routes, process parameters and add-on parts, as well as the traceability of serial numbers and batches with the entire production background (route, quality data, process parameters and installed components), pursues one major goal: seamless traceability in the production process.

With the combined Q-FIT system developed especially to accommodate the needs of RECARO production lines, SCIIL AG has set new standards for the production processes for car seats in keeping with the RECARO philosophy. The task in the initial analysis phase was to determine the potential for optimising the previous solutions.
Concrete requirements had, of course, already been specified by the management and senior production staff, while other key factors were also developed once the SCIIL experts, working together with the customer, were able to gain deeper insights into the existing processes. The KPI dashboards that are used throughout the company, for example, communicate immediate feedback on work status and results in real time to both the production management as well as the individual employees at the production line. Following the successful introduction of the combined portfolio of digital measures and tools for production planning, quality assurance, fault handling and seamless traceability, Q-FIT now ensures that RECARO will stay ahead of the competition in terms of quality, productivity and efficiency for years to come. 

NON-STOP VARIETY

With its intelligent tools, RECARO even combines greater productivity with greater employee satisfaction. All the production line employees are trained to work at several stations on the line. The software developed by SCIIL then issues hourly instructions for them to change workplace according to previously defined parameters and depending on the current production planning. The result: More variety during the working day ensures greater dynamics, higher concentration levels, and a substantially diminished error rate.
