Currently, challenges in quality improvement have driven various enterprises to create quality management systems in smart factories. The development of quality management systems enables quality control for reviewing product quality, identification, and eliminating product failures. However, process adjustment in quality control decisions may be hard to determine when failures are detected. To overcome this problem, an expert system (ES) that applies the failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) method for developing quality control systems in brake disc production lines is considered. This quality control system concentrates on analyzing product defects that occur frequently in the production line and will lead to an improved performance of the braking system; the selected product defects are disc thickness variation (DTV), runout, and parallelism. This quality control system developed two modules, the designed FMEA (DFMEA) and component FMEA, which apply a rule-based algorithm for selecting actions. We propose the rules of configuration into the expert system code. The results indicate that the operator can carry out a quality control system with decision-making that can be supported by intelligent searching and reasoning in an expert system. View Full-Text
