Quality Management

Digitizing trusted tools and methods is key for the smart factory


"I've have spent twenty years working with operational excellence and Quality Management, and I knew that I just had to have it in the software."

— Mattias Andersson, CEO and Founder of MTEK

Improve your manufacturing

SECURE PROCESS, Product and Method

MBrain is by design, a process centered software and includes tools for quality management in both a planning aspect and an operational one. 

We also utilize trusted solutions for continous improvement, such as 8D and 5 WHY.

Integrated Tool #1

Integrating Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) into MBrain offers significant benefits to modern manufacturing. FMEA systematically identifies potential failure modes within processes, enabling proactive risk mitigation.


By integrating FMEA into the Production System, we give manufacturers a way to gain comprehensive understanding of potential failure points, allowing preemptive actions to maintain smooth operations and enhance product quality. This integration also improves decision-making by prioritizing resources based on critical process parameters.


Moreover, the integration fosters a culture of continuous improvement by iteratively refining processes, driving efficiency gains and waste reduction.

Ultimately, FMEA within MBrain ensures consistent product quality, operational efficiency, and customer satisfaction, enhancing competitiveness in the market.

Integrated Tool #2

Integrating Eight Disciplines (8D) methodology into MBrain unlocked a potent solution for modern manufacturers seeking operational excellence. By seamlessly merging structured problem-solving with real-time data analytics, you can streamline processes, elevate product quality, and fortify their competitive edge.

8D methodology offers a systematic approach to address complex manufacturing challenges. When integrated with MES, it enables rapid identification, analysis, and resolution of issues throughout the production cycle. This fosters transparency, accountability, and collaboration across teams, facilitating swift decision-making and continuous improvement.

The integration of 8D within your production system empowers proactive identification and mitigation of quality issues, averting potential setbacks and preserving customer satisfaction. Moreover, it enhances traceability and accountability by documenting problem-solving steps and corrective actions, ensuring regulatory compliance and bolstering stakeholder trust.


The Five Whys method is an iterative questioning technique aimed at uncovering the fundamental cause-and-effect relationships behind a specific issue. By repeatedly asking "Why?" up to five times, the approach delves deeper into the problem, ultimately revealing its root cause. We have integrated this methodology in MBrain.

To illustrate the Five Whys technique, consider a scenario where a production line experiences frequent breakdowns:

  1. Identify the Problem: Start by clearly defining the problem you want to address. In our example, the problem is frequent breakdowns on the production line.

  2. Ask "Why?": Begin the analysis by asking why the problem occurred. For instance, "Why did the production line break down?"

  3. Probe Deeper: With each successive "Why?" question, delve deeper into the factors contributing to the problem. For example:

    • Why did the production line break down? (Because a critical component failed.)

    • Why did the component fail? (Because it wasn't properly maintained.)

    • Why wasn't it maintained properly? (Because maintenance schedules were not followed.)

    • Why weren't the schedules followed? (Because there was a lack of oversight.)

    • Why was there a lack of oversight? (Because there were no clear procedures in place.)

  4. Reach the Root Cause: Continue asking "Why?" until you reach a point where further questioning no longer provides meaningful insights. The answer to the fifth "Why?" is often considered the root cause of the problem. In our example, the root cause could be identified as the absence of clear maintenance procedures.

    Two primary techniques are used to perform a five whys analysis: the fishbone (or Ishikawa) diagram and a tabular format.

    These tools allow for analysis to be branched in order to provide multiple root causes.
