Nick Becker, AM General – Insights into Dimensional Planning and Validation

By Tim Egloff

Last week at PLM Connection I caught up with Nick Becker, Quality Control Engineer from AM General to get some further insight into how AM General is using Dimensional Planning and Validation (DPV).

Nick talks about the value of a single source of production quality information and the time and cost savings to production personnel in the critical phase of production ramp-up.  Expanding on this I asked Nick about how DPV has increased the clarity of quality information through the integration of as-built quality measurements with product and production resources for fixing quality issues faster by taking much of the guess-work out of the equation.
