08:23 ET TRACER™ Offers Effective Aid Against Critical Manufacturing Issues

Jul 15, 2021

USA - English Share this article Webinar Examines Cost of Offline Teardowns and Popularity of New Factory Solution CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich., July 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Tweddle Group announced it will host a Knowledge Base webinar on the impact of vehicle electrical issues in manufacturing, and the role its TRACER application service has come to play in eliminating these issues. The complimentary event takes place Thursday, July 22nd at 9:30AM EST. TRACER aims to ease the destructive trial-and-error of offline repairs. “TRACER’s benefit begins on the line at software flash and test stations, and it saves serious money for our partners.” "TRACER has spread to 20 factories in the last 19 months. We're going to look at why." "Electrical issues during vehicle assembly represent a huge drain on a factory's bottom line," said Tweddle Group Chief Executive Officer Pat Aubry. "If a vehicle shows a cluster of diagnostic trouble codes—or DTCs—and the technician can't resolve them, that vehicle gets pulled offline. It's a real problem." Webinar host Nick Horan, Tweddle Group's Director of Global Business Solutions, said these complex electrical repairs create huge costs for manufacturers. "It's a domino effect," said Horan. "It's bad enough you can't ship these vehicles to the dealership, even worse you have to store them. But you have to fix them, too, and without any way to pinpoint the root cause of the failure, technicians have to shred these vehicles apart. It's hit-or-miss, there's tons of damage and it wastes a lot of time." Horan said Tweddle Group developed the TRACER application service to ease the destructive trial-and-error of these offline repairs. He's pleased to see TRACER's rapid adoption among major OEMs. "TRACER's benefit begins on the line at software flash and test stations," he said. "And it saves serious money for our partners." Horan will moderate the webinar as a discussion between Ryan Pike, Tweddle Group's Executive VP of Global Business Development and Chris Boni, the TRACER Support Lead and Content Development and Validation Specialist. Horan said they'll put TRACER under the microscope in hopes of making its approach more common. "TRACER has spread to 20 factories in 19 months," Horan said. "We're going to look at why. Ryan and Chris were key to TRACER's development. We'll talk about the problems caused by complex DTC failure, the associated costs and how TRACER changes manufacturing for the people who use it." About Tweddle Group Tweddle Group believes products should be easy to use, and delivers integrated, multi-channel information solutions to support every aspect of the post-sale experience—for product managers, technicians and—most of all—consumers.
