Product warranty – the underutilized tool to uncover Quality, Reliability and Business values in your organization
This presentation will show how the engineering and business analysis of warranty data can provide the key information to evaluate the product’s quality and reliability and drive the necessary design improvements. It will also cover the business aspects of handling warranty including the role of supply chain management and the overall effect on the company’s bottom line.
