Manufacturing quality

Manufacturing quality the Volvo Way

The Volvo Production System (VPS) is the framework for our manufacturing operations. Its objective is to foster best practice methods and implement advanced manufacturing technology.

VPS is also a toolkit, including methods such as Six Sigma – reduction of unwanted variation in processes, and Lean – elimination of wasted time and material that help create value for our customers through increased Quality, Delivery Precision and Cost-efficiency.

With the Volvo core value “Quality” as foundation, the 5 principles of the Volvo Production System are:

  • Process stability
  • Teamwork
  • Built-in quality
  • Just-in-time
  • Continuous improvement
