As per media reports, the company also has had recent issues with debris in its other products i.e. 787 Dreamliners and KC-46A military refueling tankers, which led to two suspensions of deliveries of KC-46As to the US air force.
Foreign object debris, an industrial term for rags, tools, metal shavings and other materials left behind by workers during the assembly line aircraft production process, can raise the risk of electrical short-circuiting and fires.
This typically results from poor employee training coupled with near non-existent in-process quality control systems!
A culture of Kaizen helps bigtime in such cases. Kaizen-based installation of quality systems are extremely effective for all types of workplaces be it- production, assembly-line or service functions. Moreover, combining Kaizen with mistake-proofing tools such as Poka Yoke, the product’s quality as well as safety are further augmented.
