CUSTOMER PROBLEM ANALYSIS CHECK AND SYMPTOM CHECK

HINT:

  • The safety connect system provides a variety of functions. Therefore, it is important to identify whether a malfunction is related to the communication system, including radio wave conditions, or any other systems. Carefully check the conditions that caused the malfunction in order to determine if a temporary problem with the radio wave signal conditions caused the malfunction.
  • In troubleshooting, confirm that the problem symptoms have been accurately identified. Preconceptions should be discarded in order to make an accurate judgment. To clearly understand what the problem symptoms are, it is extremely important to ask the customer about the problem and the conditions at the time the malfunction occurred.
  • Gather as much information as possible for reference. Past problems that seem unrelated may also help in some cases.
