At Prestolite we are committed to continuous improvement of our Customer’s experience by expanding our product range, improving quality of our products, reducing downtime for Customers and offering a cost effective and value for money product range.
Every day, we purchase parts for our plants around the world. We rely upon our suppliers to operate a quality management system to guarantee defect-free delivery, right from start of production. Accordingly, milestones and necessary tasks are discussed with suppliers at the beginning of any project.
We agree on the specific quality assurance measures to be carried out during the engineering phase. We place particular importance on failure impact analysis (FMEA) and capability testing for machines, production processes, and testing procedures. Another important element is the critical assessment of parameters that are likely to change during the production process (e.g. because of tool wear, shift / staff changes). The final stage of this preventive quality assurance process is a final release based on initial sample approval and process acceptance under production conditions.
In close cooperation of quality management, technical purchasing and suppliers together with Prestolite engineering and production we take care for a perfect start of production (SOP).
