Failure and Damage Analysis

In principle it is not possible to avoid failures and damage on products completely. They may be caused by such things as construction, manufacturing and material faults or by incorrect use. For the manufacturer, this becomes a problem when these faults occur or are noticed when the product has reached the end customer.

In cases such as this many companies use the complex problem resolving expertise of our Automotive Business Line to determine the causes, to get advice how to eliminate and avoid the fault and to obtain solid expert opinions for any legal disputes.
