28 June 2011

Icona Solutions, which develops, supplies and supports the perceived quality simulation and visualisation software application, aesthetica, has appointed Phil Colman as a perceived quality consultant.

He was responsible for dimensional analysis of Ford’s acclaimed 3.2 litre diesel engine power-train used in Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. He also undertook measurement planning for the new Range Rover Evoque as well as dimensional planning and analysis and locator selection and documentation for the Land Rover Freelander.

At Icona Solutions Colman will be responsible for providing companies such as Bentley Motors, Fiat, Nissan, Hyundai and Porsche, to name a few, with software application consulting and implementation services related to solving component and assembly variation issues.

His expertise here will enable companies to minimise the impact of manufacturing variation on the perceived quality of the final product and reduce costs by reaching agreement on variation allowances earlier in the design process than is usually the case.
