Investigative Analysis

.

Manufacturers encounter various issues during production processes that could hinder their manufacturing timeline. Faulty or substitute raw materials, contaminants in final products, coating and adhesion failures, surface defects, corrosion, and discoloration can all adversely affect the final product. Furthermore, they often impede production chains. Hence, manufacturers must rapidly identify the source of the problem to prevent further loss of time, money, and customers.
