Kokomo Thick Film Printing utilizes a system of rules known as Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) when developing and introducing new products to ensure robust reliability and performance. With extensive input from the customer, and utilizing a cross functional approach, we anticipate potential unseen new issues and draw on past history to build a robust FMEA (failure modes and effects analysis). We utilize the FMEA to develop failure analysis testing, comprehensive control plans and monitoring processes, to help ensure flawless launches.
But the work doesn’t stop there. While in production the Kokomo Thick Film Printing team is constantly working to improve our world class performance with regards to quality and reliability. Along with failure analysis testing, we utilize continuous improvement methodologies from various disciplines such as Six Sigma, Shainin, Lean Manufacturing practices and 5S. We have the training and experience necessary to continue the advancements necessary to provide you with the quality and durability needed for today’s high reliability applications.
