Selection of Evaluation Methods for New Weld Demands: Pitfalls and Possible Solutions
Paper in proceedings, 2012

New demands often create a need for new evaluation methods. However, there are several pitfalls when choosing those methods that can endanger the expected benefits. This study shows examples from the implementation of a new welding standard at several sites in the same company. It focuses on possible pitfalls as well as probable causes and potential solutions with a push- and pull-approach. The examples cover the problems with unclear or too simplified demands, lack of evaluation method and incapable evaluation methods. The ability to handle and prevent the described issues is a prerequisite in order to be able to develop the organisation in means of quality assurance for light weight structures.
