Quality control is essential in any industry. When you’re making something as complex as a car, you better pay extra attention to quality.
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Fisker on the re-launch of the Karma. If you’re an auto buff, you’ll remember the Karma as one of the biggest failures in recent auto history. Having never run an auto manufacturing process, Fisker outsourced most of the work.
This let to some serious quality issues. What still is a GREAT looking automobile was set for demise! Lean Quality Systems was called in as part of the “rescue mission” to re-launch the Karma. We helped establish the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System and the ISO 14001:2015 Enviornmenal Management System that Fisker is using for the Karma re-launch as the Revero.
After all these years, I’m looking forward to see the Karma/Revero on the streets again.
It just goes to show, good Quality brings good Karma!
