Quality

Quality is at the foundation of what we do at SPM. Our quality team is experienced, cross-trained, and constantly growing and innovating. We are an ISO 9001:2015 certified company, which means that we consistently provide our customers with products and services that meet all of the necessary regulatory requirements. This certification also means that we demonstrate continuous improvement in our processes that drive quality. These sustained processes ensure that we maintain consistent quality results across all of our departments.

How We Build-In Quality

Prevention

  • In-Process inspection methods and self-imposed AQL inspection frequencies are used to help identify possible issues
  • Our ERP system produces automated workflows with embedded approval gates, which mitigate risk and reduce mistakes
  • Lean manufacturing practices eliminate constraints and improve process flow

Recognition

  • Our experienced Quality team is highly-trained to recognize part discrepancies
  • Custom manufactured fixtures are used to validate the form fit and function of parts
  • Discrepant Item Reports (DIRs) are logged into our ERP system whenever a quality issue occurs

Analysis

  • Our ERP system tracks real-time data that can be analyzed for contextual insights
  • DIR analysis helps the Quality team investigate problems and uncover root trends
  • Weekly Data Reviews generate necessary corrective actions
  • Our Cost of Quality program analyzes quality KPIs

Improvement

  • Scheduled audits ensure that our processes are being followed in compliance with the standards of ISO 9001:2015
  • A strong focus is given to recognizing Opportunities for Improvement (OPIs)
  • Our Continuous Improvement program encourages new ideas that can be implemented to drive quality

Quality Inspection System

SPM is one of only 20 companies in North America to install and utilize InspecVision’s 3D Inspection System. This system is the fastest in the world for both inspection and the reverse engineering of parts and can take more than 40 million measurements in 0.1 seconds. Our Quality department utilizes this technology to increase productivity and support the better-quality analysis of complex parts and assemblies.
