Tires - treadwear measurement, project scheduling and final finish quality

Tread-wear testing is an exacting science. It starts with alignment standards that are anything but standard, exact weight requirements for each corner of the vehicle, daily permutation of tires, repeatability and adherence to schedules begin the process. Calibration schedules for each and every piece of equipment, written procedures for each step in the process, technician training, certification and testing to assure complete competency are just the beginning.

Optimizing scheduling for multiple concurrent sets of tests in order to meet project engineer's timetables and deadlines is also science. It requires the ability and flexibility to adjust on the fly as interim data collection and reporting generates variances from originally designated protocols. Coordinating manpower, vehicles and tire sets to meet exacting turn round times in an economic and efficient manner isn't just a science, it verges on being an art.

Quality control and quality assurance are the core mission of the final finish stage of tire production. Deploying and managing the teams that monitor the conveyor flow, run the force machines, operate the x-ray equipment and inspect the finished product lines in operations that run 24/7 leaves no room for error.

The entire team, from payroll to recruiting to upper management support has been outstanding. TPG goes the extra mile.
