Full Lot Traceability
In the rare event of a part failure for whatever reason, it is critical to find the source of the damaged part and remove or examine other components that were made at the same time. To that end, Top Tool provides full lot traceability to quickly and efficiently remedy any problems that have occurred and minimize the risk of incurring additional ones. Top Tool also provides lot batch controls for all orders requiring this level of control.
Lean (Continuous Process Improvement) CPI
In any business, if you sit still you fall behind. To help us achieve sustained quality and consistency, Top Tool employs Six Sigma and Lean Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) to improve the quality of output processes by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimizing variability in manufacturing processes. Using Lean thinking, a dynamic, knowledge-driven, customer-focused process, everyone at Top Tool strives to continuously eliminate waste and expense, maximize resources and streamline operations to create a total enterprise transformation. This program clearly identifies when activities require customer involvement and approval prior to implementation.
