Designed for Manufacturing Quality and Reliability
In this stage, we emphasize quality and reliability, with the ultimate goal to improve
availability, minimize sustainment costs, and maximize product
lifetime. To enhance reliability, new products are subjected to comprehensive product
development procedures and three key tests: E-test, quality
reliability test, and I-test. >>Explore now
(New Product Development Procedure)
Moxa’s 25 years of product design experience have been encoded into a well-defined
“New Product Development Process (NPDP)” to manage the
entire development process. An important aspect of the process is that different
departments work closely together so that problems can be identified
in the early stages of the process. Implementing a systematic, meticulous development
process that caters to the customer’s needs reduces delivery
time, minimizes project risks, reduces product development costs, and guarantees
consistent product quality and performance.
Moxa’s New Product Development Process has Seven Stages and Six Important Milestones
(Reliability, Availability, Maintainability)
Failures and the unavailability of systems cost time and money. Moxa uses the RAM
concept to enhance operational performance, and uses a variety of measures to reduce
the risk of failures and ensure that systems are reliable, available for use, and
Moxa has adopted the RAMS V Model based on EN 50126.
DFMEA and FRACAS
(“Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis” and “Failure Reporting
Analysis and Corrective Action Systems”)
To ensure production quality, we apply FMEA, CP, MSA, and SPC to manage all design
and manufacturing factors in the product planning, design and development, and realization
stages, to meet customer expectations of quality, reliability, cost, and scheduling.
FMEA is a vital tool for developing new products and improving existing products,
and is particularly important for manufacturing industrial networking products.
It identifies and prioritizes the “significant characteristics” that may need special
product and process controls. DFMEA provides the design team with the opportunity
to review the previous generation of products and
process characteristics, and take whatever actions are deemed necessary.
FRACAS defines a process for disciplined closed loop failure reporting, analysis,
and taking corrective
action. We use FRACAS to record all failures and problems related to a product or
process plus the
associated root causes and failure analyses to assist in identifying and implementing
and prevent the problems from recurring. FRACAS provides real-time added value,
and allows us to
respond and improve quickly. When potential failure modes are identified, corrective
action can be taken
to eliminate or reduce the potential for recurrence.
