Wabtec integrates quality control with quality management to provide shop floor insights and streamline on-time delivery.

Wabtec Uses ETQ Reliance to Cut Total Quality Costs by 35%. In 2010, freight train manufacturer GE Transportation, ultimately acquired by Wabtec in 2019, began experiencing significant quality "excursions" – product failures in their locomotives that made it out to customers in the field. The failures were chronic and cost the business more than $100 million annually, but the company had no insight into what was causing the failures or how to prevent them. At the same time, the global economic downturn caused the company to lose resources and staff.
