Abstract

The final products that emerge from innovative production processes for different electric vehicle parts are Aluminum profiles of all designs for applications such as doors, structural and semi-structural parts, etc. The production line of these products is automated, where every work process, is controlled by CNC panels in which they are implemented and programmed with different software. The automation of the production processes tends to improve the quality of the product and tends to optimize the production process to minimize and decrease production waste. This paper presents the production process of different electric vehicle parts and how their quality is evaluated by using PFMEA analysis according to the quality standards. The implementation of quality standards resulted in product quality and enterprise quality management system improvement.
