Additional welds on a workpiece compared to current workpiece design.
Detection is typically made with a visual inspection of the workpiece by counting the welds and comparing with a quality inspection chart.
Quality, Workplace Issues, Cost, Downtime, Maintenance, Throughput (cycle time; PPH) are all potentially affected by this condition. Special considerations are noted below:
- Quality: Extra welds may modify crash energy management.
- Incorrect design revision
