Lanner's quality assurance procedures include the regulation of the quality of raw materials, assembly procedures, testing procedures, production management and inspection processes. Lanner's QA team is well-versed in the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to quality and we have extensive experience and a proven track record of customer and independent audits.
Some of the many ways we ensure product reliability include:
- Design verification
- In-line failure testing
- Extended burn-in procedure
- Statistical control of errors
- Deep analysis of quality practices
Lanner Design Quality Assurance (DQA) focuses on new product development processes to ensure quality is built in during the product design stage. Lanner provides focused resources and corrective action plans to continuously improve quality testing results.
Lanner DQA cover the following testing items:
- New Product Introduction (NPI) Process
- Building Block Design Process
- Compatibility Test
- Signal Quality Measurement
- Reliability Test
- Component Approval
Manufacturing Quality Management
Lanner Manufacturing Quality Management (MQM) focuses on maintaining quality throughout the production process, and includes thermal testing, drop testing, burn-in procedures, equipment maintenance and calibration, and other systems for ensuring ongoing end product quality. MQM constantly feeds quality-related issues to R&D for improved product performance and compatibility.
Closed Loop Corrective Actions (CLCA)
The CLCA system defines a quality process flow that integrates all of the specific quality systems to provide feedback to R&D and manufacturing for continuous quality improvement
Online Engineering Requests and Changes
The engineering change system is linked to Lanner's ERP system to control engineering changes and rework requests, ensuring that engineering changes are incorporated into future design and manufacturing processes.
Data Collection and Reporting
Data collection and reporting is performed for each manufacturing operation. Data is collected, reported and analyzed in yield rate reports and distributed to customers for each work order. Data collection contributes to continuous quality improvement by incorporating a number of distinct but linked systems.
Component Qualification and Control System
Lanner component qualification processes employ the latest inspection equipment to ensure the quality of materials and components prior to manufacturing, and to inspect semi-finished components during manufacturing.
Handheld and benchtop X-ray fluorescence spectrometers are used to detect levels of regulated substances for RoHS compliance, and all materials and components are rigorously inspected to ensure purity and conformance with strict material composition limits.
