On the road to Quality 4.0

At Factor we are involved for several years in the evolution of our processes, technologies and organizational philosophy towards Industry 4.0.

There is a lot of discussion about this term, although to be specific, for us it involves the team's intellectual adaption in the way of doing things and the technological implementation. This is mainly based on automation and digitization, with specific examples in data exchange, cloud computing, artificial intelligence applied to processes, the internet of things (IoT) and 3D printing. In short, we develop our "core" solutions with a better focus on efficiency, sustainability and productivity. This is our mission.

On this path, quality management is of course a cross-cutting dynamic. At Factor, it is essential to interconnect manufacturing systems and processes, something we have achieved thanks to the new ERP system, which has been fully operational since mid-2023, our own Factor Self-Control System and the internal development of an App for managing non-conformities. It should be noted that the current ERP is for us a complete solutions ecosystem, which among other functionalities, allows us to schedule the best production flow and expand the functions of quality control and traceability.

The implementation of these technologies in the management of our Total Quality Management system is therefore an important support to improve our agility and adaptability to change, being able to predict any potential deviation in our production. For example, the integrated system has the ability to prevent the parts manufacturing out of control limits, alerting if the parts we manufacture are in tolerance, between defined safety limits or out of specification.

This new way of managing production, and therefore quality, helps us to maintain higher quality standards, reduce waste and scrap and therefore, to advance in a better efficiency that allows us to compete in the market in better conditions for our customers.

Factory of the Future at a Glance

Factor participates in the XXIII Advanced Manufacturing Congress.

A few days after the XXIII Advanced Manufacturing Congress, masterfully organized by AFM Cluster and held from October 25 to 27 at the Science and Technology Park of Guipúzkoa, it is time to take stock of what we experienced there.

The Congress brought together brilliant minds and industry leaders to reflect on the future of manufacturing and the disruptive technologies that will shape it. Figures such as Iñaki Gabilondo and Pedro Echenique inspired us with their vision. Exciting topics were explored, from 5G to robotics and sustainability, with speakers from leading companies such as IE Business School, Microsoft, Teléfonica, IBM and Siemens, among others.

The second day was equally exciting, with examples of success in additive technology and discussions on the challenges of strategic sectors such as aeronautics, rail, automotive, energy and defense.

At the close of the congress, we highlighted two elements that we believe are crucial for the future of advanced manufacturing: sustainability and talent management. We learned from the best practices of companies such as Fagor, Ihobe, Airbus and Nidec Arisa. In addition, leaders in people management, such as Lantek, Nidec Arisa and MIK, shared strategies for attracting young talent to their organizations. And Xavier Marcet closed the congress by highlighting the importance of leadership as a catalyst for this talent.

The Congress is undoubtedly a must for all companies looking for a roadmap on strategy, technology and people management for the factories of the 21st century.

Are you ready for the future of advanced manufacturing?
