ND is a major cylindrical lock product in Schlage commercial portfolio which offers a variety of functions.
Among them is a ND offering that can accommodate a competitor Cylinder. This product claims its
importance in a situation where a customer wants to replace the existing lock with a Schlage lock while
retaining his old key system. Customer complaints surrounding installation difficulties, misalignment and
interference of components resulted in the discontinuation of this function. A root cause analysis
performed on the failure, along with application of a VAVE approach not only gave us a robust design that
addresses all the concerns but also allowed us to arrive at a cost effective design thus, efficiently
bringing the product back to the market.
