American Quality Management, a business based in Montebello, California, has announced with pride that they have reached a key milestone by helping their 100th company in achieving AS9100 certification. They are a consulting firm that helps an organization get certified, whether it is AS9100, AS9120, or any of the ISO standards, such as ISO 9001:2015 or ISO 14001.
Connie Smith, a spokesperson for American Quality Management, says "It fills us with great pride to announce that we have already helped 100 companies achieve AS9100 certification.”
She continues, “American Quality Management will come to you anywhere in the world and spend a full business day evaluating your AS9100 opportunity at zero cost to you whatsoever. We’re out to prove that we are the best at what we do, and we prefer that you put us to the test before you even think about hiring us.”
Connie Smith points out that it is very important for businesses to attain AS9100 certification. For instance, the aerospace industry has to comply with AS9100D standards and this is essential because the international aerospace industry’s reputation for quality and safety mostly depends on a supply chain that complies with exceptional standards. AS9100 serves as the very foundation for all standards with regards to quality and uniformity, all of which are applicable to very tier of the supply chain of the aerospace industry all over the world.
Any organization that wants to become an aerospace supplier or parts producer will find that it is essential to get an AS9100 certification. Companies that are AS9100 certified often experience a distinct business advantage over other global supply chain companies. This is important for the survival of the business because the industry has been experiencing rapid growth and with it comes increased and tougher competition. Lucrative contracts from the aerospace industry giants more often than not are provided to the companies that are AS9100 certified with an accredited registrar.
With aerospace companies being responsible for the safety and well-being of hundreds of millions of travelers each year, it is not hard to understand why they have no choice but to require all of their suppliers to comply with rigid conformity standards. This assures air travelers that everything has been done to ensure that they are provided with the safest possible travel.
In addition to the competitive advantage that it offers to companies, an AS9100 certification also provides other benefits. These include cost savings; increased customer satisfaction and loyalty; systematic improvement at all levels of the business; and better management of business’ infrastructure.
Cost savings can be achieved because of a more efficient supply chain management and the daily processes that affect production or service, such as people, resources, machines, software, equipment, facilities, and more. There would be increased customer satisfaction because of on-time deliveries and sustainable high levels of quality.
And there would be improvement in all levels of business because the areas that need improvement are identified and there is guaranteed commitment from upper management, and there is ongoing development and evaluation of quality management systems and objectives. And there would be better management of the infrastructure because the entire business model is optimized from the ground up.
Meanwhile, it is advisable to hire a consultant for AS9100. This is because consultants will be using their expertise in the aerospace industry to ensure that everything will be running smoothly, which implies that the business will be able to apply for and gain the latest A9100 certification. Businesses can actually do the process of having certified themselves. However, it would likely be a difficult and lengthy process. This is usually only recommended when only a few small changes are necessary to comply with the standards.
And when choosing a consultant, there are a number of things to look for. These include expertise in all areas of the industry; ability to use several different techniques in helping the business gain AS9100 certification; provision of assistance in the creation of of quality manuals, forms and more; ability to review the current management systems and determine what needs to be changed or updated; and certification training in AS9100.
