CASE STUDY - ASSET TRACKING AND MANAGEMENT

INCOMPATIBLE PARTS

REMCAL quarantines and pre-tests every early return that hits our dock.  Our test technicians noticed that the "white" subassemblies were heavily represented on our early return rack BUT represented an extremely small fraction of total repairs.  We initiated a special tracking feature in our proprietary Asset Management and Tracking Software and ultimately determined that the slightly different dimensions of the older "white subassembly" meant that it could only be coupled with specific final assemblies.  

That determination saved our customer thousands of dollars in otherwise necessary New Buy costs because we were able to track good "marriages" between assembly and sub-assembly!
