IA Panel Shop Errorless Streak Ends After Nearly 4 Months

1errorIt took nearly four months and thousands of units produced but Innovative Automation‘s UL508A panel shop finally committed an error on a panel or a custom manufacturing job.

The error-less streak stretched back into March before a minor slip-up the week of July 24 ended the amazing run. Innovative’s panel shop built error-free jobs more than 99.9 percent of the time in the 12 months ending with August 2009. The late-July error was confirmed last week at an internal QC audit.

Their on-time delivery rate of 98.6 percent for that same time period — as defined by the customer’s requested due date, no matter how demanding or the difficulty of obtaining the parts — is an industry standard for timeliness.

“It was a full quarter and a half of error-less work,” said Innovative’s shop manager Jason Scott, who mans one of several quality control checkpoints in the manufacturing process. “Now, we start a new errorless streak.”
