Spec creep, when a product’s actual specifications drift over time from those set down on paper, is any manufacturer’s nightmare. It leads to reduced quality, lost confidence and lost customers. So how can you avoid it?
At IRD Glass, we use a cell-based approach to manufacturing that eliminates the risk of spec creep. Our system revolves around small, dedicated teams working on individual client projects. Each cell is responsible for the entire lifecycle a component will experience, from the ordering of raw material to the manufacture, final inspection and shipping of the product.
This process has ensured unwavering quality and fidelity to our clients’ original specifications year after year. That’s why we are a sole-source provider of precision glass and ceramic components for large and small corporations across the globe.
Spec creep, and all the ensuing headaches and costs it can entail, can be avoided with good communication, self-discipline, and planning. Here are some specific ways to manage spec creep.
