ENSURE QUALITY AT SOURCE
THE BUYER'S PERSPECTIVE
“1Factory has enabled a different level of integration with our key suppliers on high risk parts. We are solving the problem of stale and dusty control plans, and lack of supplier monitoring of quality data. We also found issues with measurement resolution on key features, and we found other cases where the distribution of data suggests abnormal processing (scrap, rework, fine tuning).”

THE SUPPLIER'S PERSPECTIVE
“With 1Factory, we give the customer access to the heart of RIVAL A/S. Everything is available and that gives the customer some security. The system saves us a lot of paperwork because we no longer have to make measurement reports and forward to the customer. We can also keep an eye on unmanned production on the weekends. Otherwise we would be left with over 1000 components all of which would have to be scrapped."
HOW IT WORKS
1. Connect With Suppliers
Connect with your suppliers over the 1factory platform. Access QC Plans, Inspection Data, Analysis, and Risk-Assessment for every incoming batch of parts from across the supply chain.
2. Define Controls
Work with your suppliers to develop quality control plans. Ensure that every critical product feature and process parameter has an associated control plan to prevent mistakes and control variation.
3. Enforce Controls
Bring your QC Plans to life. Ensure that data is collected in a systematic and disciplined manner. Verify output against specifications at the point-of-manufacturing. Detect problems early and assess risk before parts leave the supplier.
4. Speed-up New Product Introduction
Digitize, standardize and simplify the FAIR and PPAP process for your suppliers and for your team. Assign FAIRs and PPAPs electronically, monitor progress, resolve problems early, ensure compliance, and retrieve records quickly. Qualify new parts and products faster. Improve time to market.
5. Improve Quality
Enjoy a shared view of inspections data and associated risk-assessment with your suppliers. Easily identify high-risk parts and features from across the supply-chain. Prioritize resources and work together with suppliers to solve problems before defective parts enter the supply chain.
6. Resolve Issues
Manage supplier corrective actions (SCARs), and manage overall supplier performance with built-in dashboards and scorecards.
Quickly bracket recalls with built-in traceability for gage ID, batch number, serial number etc.
CASE STUDY: WORLD'S LARGET AUTONOMOUS DELIVERY SYSTEM
Zipline designs, manufactures and operates the world's largest autonomous delivery system, delivering life-saving supplies such as blood and medicines, and cutting delivery time from hours to minutes.
High-quality parts are critical to successful and reliable delivery. To ensure the quality of parts coming in from suppliers, Zipline deployed the 1factory system across its supply chain. Today suppliers create Control Plans and First Articles and submit them to Zipline for review and approval via 1factory. Once Plans and FAIs are reviewed, suppliers submit on-going inspection data to Zipline via 1factory.
Watch a 7-minute video to hear first-hand from the Zipline team (Incoming Inspection, Quality Engineering, Supplier Quality, and Chief Technology Officer) about the power of 1factory, its ease-of-use, and its impact on cost of quality.
