Founded in October 1997, National Aerospace Fasteners Corporation (NAFCO) has been focusing on technology, optimizing manufacturing processes, and providing high-quality fastener products for aerospace and advanced industrial applications. With its production plants located in Taiwan and Shanghai, up to 90 percent of NAFCO’s products are sold worldwide.

This case study, provided courtesy of APQC member PwC Taiwan, describes the three phases NAFCO has undergone in its approach to digital transformation: 

  1. The establishment of connectivity and data measurement indicators
  2. Digitalization of production and quality control
  3. Moving towards advanced the smart control systems (such as an AI tapping machine project) after 2020
