This paper illustrates how an effective implementation of NDT (Non Destructive testing) could influence the productivity and profitability of a manufacturing process. It was possible to show how changes in the productivity affect profit, separately from the effects of changes in the uncontrollable factors, i.e. price recovery. NDT is not a cost centre, but a profit generating function. Markets are affected by diverse customer needs, which demand higher quality, shorter delivery time, higher customer service level and lower prices. At the same time, product life cycles are becoming shorter and shorter. Success in any competitive context depends on having either a cost advantage or a value advantage, or, ideally, both. So involvement of new and effective technology in companies working is required, NDT is one of them.

Abstract


This paper illustrates how an effective implementation of NDT (Non Destructive testing) could influence the productivity and profitability of a manufacturing process. It was possible to show how changes in the productivity affect profit, separately from the effects of changes in the uncontrollable factors, i.e. price recovery. NDT is not a cost centre, but a profit generating function. Markets are affected by diverse customer needs, which demand higher quality, shorter delivery time, higher customer service level and lower prices. At the same time, product life cycles are becoming shorter and shorter. Success in any competitive context depends on having either a cost advantage or a value advantage, or, ideally, both. So involvement of new and effective technology in companies working is required, NDT is one of them.
