Manufacturers of any product—from medical devices to automobiles—must create items that are, above all else, safe to use. Not only is this essential to long-term brand value and corporate success, but it’s also required by law. But while perfection is the goal, defects are bound to occur, especially in advanced products such as automobiles. When a safety defect does occur, auto manufacturers must initiate some form of recall to address the problem. Since 2013, the number of automotive recalls climbed to an average of 177 per year, up 86% from the prior experience around 1980. Product liability from negligence can present a substantial problem for organizations. They can result in liability of the manufacturer for deaths, injuries, fatalities, or property damage caused by its products. They can save millions of dollars by preventing recalls of their products proactively. The automotive component suppliers are also responsible for safety if they design the components and subsystems.
The aerospace industry needs to improve also. A poll conducted by the Performance Review Institute (PRI) in January 2010 showed that 88% of respondents felt that their company could do a better job of measuring escapes. An escape is where defective product has been shipped to the customer prior to being identified as faulty, hence it has “escaped”.
Aerospace escapes need to be taken very seriously. When they are not recognized, escapes can cause fatalities. Flawed parts have been fitted in commercial planes without anyone realizing or recognizing them as flawed parts. As a result, a number of airline crashes have occurred due to faulty fuel lines or hydraulic fittings. In another case, 20,000 parts processed improperly had to be recalled at a cost of $20,000,000. A good example of an escape is Boeing 737 Max.
