Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, recently reported in Quality Digest magazine the impact of product recalls for manufactures and recommends how to avoid and manage them. Two words no manufacturing organization wants to hear: product recalls. By their very nature, product recalls are unpredictable events. The cost to a company transcends potentially expensive litigation and settlements. Product recalls and the effects that product failures have on companies that fail to conduct proper design analysis before, during, and after the manufacturing process are often unrecoverable.

The globalization of manufacturing has exacerbated this challenge. When manufacturers allocate necessary time and resources, product recalls should not happen. Recalls are not only costly for companies, but most often cause huge frustration and inconvenience for consumers.
Whether consumer harm is due to manufacturing design failures or to product failures, there is an ever-stronger force of advocates for consumers, well-versed in global manufacturing scenarios and armed with the right tools, who can help determine how to prevent costly and sometimes deadly product failures. For instance, tolerance analysis software offers manufacturers the tools they need to ensure their products come off the assembly line without defect or risk of failure.
This year manufacturers will work aggressively to eliminate the error between predictive models and physical factory results. Ultimately, success will be measured in the prevention of costly recalls and consumer dissatisfaction or injury.
