Paper Abstract

This paper describes the planning which was involved to successfully install the first high power laser system at this particular operating division. The production system laser welds automatic washing machine transmission gears. Included is a description of planning through product redesign, process design and development, installation, manufacturing and maintenance. Whirlpool's Total Quality Assurance program was instrumental in ensuring proper planning and communication took place well in advance of the equipment arriving at the plant.
