10 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK NORTH EAST FASTENER CORPORATION 8 Tremco Drive, Terryville, CT 06786 TEL 1-860-589-3232 FAX 1-860-589-6969 EMAIL nef@nef1.com WEB www.nef1.com NEF’S QUALITY INVESTMENTS PAYING BIG DIVIDENDS Over the last year and a half, NEF’s investments in its quality systems are now totaling well over half a million dollars and it is beginning to pay off in a very big way. NEF researched and then purchased several vision inspection systems that were designed to measure multiple profile dimensions which are accurate to +/- 0.0001 of an inch. These measurements are completed and recorded in less than a second. Along with the profile vision systems, tens of thousands of dollars were additionally invested into other visual and digital input measuring systems to ensure delay free access for every operator. NEF’s IT team, together with the quality and engineering managers worked in association with machine operators to custom design and develop a comprehensive user interface that integrates directly into NEF’s extensive ERP system. It was no small task when you realize that this not only required the input of hundreds of thousands of industry specifications along with process rules but that NEF’S IT AND QA DIRECTORS OFFICE (PARTIAL VIEW) ONE OF NEF’S 5 OPERATOR INSPECTION STATIONS it all had to coincide with the logic to tie everything into the NEF production and process travelers. The end result has dramatically increased the flow as well as the number of inspections in far less time and with virtually zero errors. The ability to obtain and retain now copious amounts of information for future data mining and analysis will also allow NEF to stay focused on their continuous improvement programs in both quality and manufacturing efficiencies. Reporting on the first piece or final inspections, as well as PPAP’s, SPC and other custom reports, are becoming far easier, faster and extremely accurate. New features that have been built into the system also include error proofing, as well as ensuring sequential processes are followed to avoid costly mistakes, all of which reduces costs which benefit NEF as well as their customers in a significant and meaningful way.
