Customer video – problem solving with Shainin techniques
Wouter Henderickx, Quality & regulatory leader at Philips talks about his experience with the application of Shainin based problem solving techniques at a Belgian supplier to the automotive industry.
With the help of our problem solving consultants they were able to find the root cause of a complex problem that caused line stop in manufacturing within one week.

“Thank you for the clear report and the DVDs with data sets. This gives a good basis to start working on our spectrum management database and to learn how to verify and release wireless devices in our medical environments. I liked working with you and the team very much and I am very pleased with the results and the way the project was able to stay on track with planning.”
“We immediately spoke to the right person at Philips Innovation Services in the Netherlands. They were kind enough to show us around. We found that they had dedicated an entire building to the testing facility we needed from them. They optimised the design and performed simulations. In our field, groundbreaking innovations mostly come from small companies. It is nice to notice facilities are taking that into account.”
