Before the Elementary solution came into the picture, Yamaha Motors faced significant challenges in maintaining quality control for their ATV and ROV units. The task of verifying the accuracy of warning labels on these units was especially burdensome, contributing to high turnover among quality control personnel.
The task of checking warning labels overwhelms human inspectors
Superior quality and customer satisfaction are non-negotiables for Yamaha Motor Company. However, this pursuit of excellence comes with its complexities. Yamaha's ATV and ROV unit produces a wide range of models used for leisure, utility work, and more. Each unit must come with a warning label specific to its model and intended number of riders.
Traditionally, quality control inspectors shouldered this critical responsibility, manually examining each label before the ATVs and ROVs could leave the assembly line. This method was not only slow but also taxing for the personnel involved, resulting in significant employee turnover and a bottleneck in the quality control process.
