A step by step photo story reveals the secret!
As discussed in our last article, we at be quiet! attach great importance to high levels of quality management during product development. So of course we also insist that quality control cannot be skipped during or after production.
Now we would like to give all interested parties an insight into the production line of the Straight Power 10. In this installment of INSIDE be quiet! we show you step by step how a be quiet! power supply is created and which tests it has to undergo during production before it makes its way to the warehouse and ultimately to you.
A final word
During the entire production process, we place the highest demands on quality. To meet these demands, we have implemented many additional QC checks in various individual steps of the process. You might think this would have a negative effect on the cost of production, but in fact production efficiency—in the form of minimal rejects and failures—plays an important role in keeping costs manageable. Put another way: skimping on quality control does not lower total cost.
The ultimate goal for us is, of course, the overall quality that results from our precision and attention to detail. “That’s German attitude, and that’s the be quiet! way.”
