Proactive Monitoring of Remedy Effectiveness

Once the root-cause has been identified and a remedy has been developed, many OEMs feel that they can move on to solving the next issue. Unfortunately, that's not the case. Many OEMs experience warranty claims on previous warranty issues and recalls on previous recall fixes because remedies weren't effective or caused entirely separate issues. To avoid these scenarios, the effectiveness of field and production fixes must be closely monitored.

Proactive Monitoring leverages analytic techniques to model the expected reduction in related repairs over time, comparing expected failures vs. actual failures to identify ineffective fixes.
