Packing mistake – Case #096

June 7, 2013


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: Wrong assortment. A box of a different size was included in the master carton

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to deploy one artisan to check 100% of the master cartons for the assortment involved. We had a chop made to be used by each artisan responsible for checking the packing of master cartons, so that each artisan takes the ownership of his/her job. Further, Impactiva performed random inspections of packed master cartons every 1.5 hours and if a single error is found the whole lot is sent to be reworked. The result is entered in a log book in order to identify the responsible artisans over a period of time.
