Cluster Geometry and quality

The cluster for geometry and quality is one of eight clusters within the Swedish Production Cluster. The cluster focuses on research and development in geometry and quality assurance in product design and manufacturing.

Effective geometry and quality assurance in product design and manufacturing are a prerequisite for achieving customer satisfaction; this also reduces the risks of late adjustment costs, delays, and warranty costs. In a total perspective, it also involves sustainability, Geometry, and Quality Assurance aims to produce less scrap and provide more accuracy in product and processes. A critical enabler is the standards for specification and verification and that they are understood and interpreted equally by all involved.
