This paper describes a study investigating the current situation concerning plate gaps in welding operations at a company producing welded products. A varying gap between the plates has been identified as a root cause for quality issues and unnecessary costly welds, hence affecting resource efficiency. The result showed signs of vast variations of gaps, both concerning the size of gaps and presence of an extra weld. The investigation indicates a large potential, possible to achieve without heavy investments.
