Case Studies – Automotive
Cummins Engine Brazil used CETOL 6σ as a component of a Dimensional
Variation Analysis (DVA) it performed to verify the length of a FEAD
(Front Engine Drive Accessories) belt path. The results were used to
make improvements in the assembly line and in the design itself.
Engineers at ZF Electronic utilized CETOL 6σ on their automotive
door latch assembly, identifying design areas that were sensitive to
variation prior to entering production. The end result was substantial
cost savings and time-to-market benefits.
