Advanced Plastics operate a Quality Management System certified to ISO9001-2008 and IATF 16949 standards,. We are one of only approximately thirty injection moulders in the UK to be IATF 16949 standards certified.
Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Process Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (PFMEA) and Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) methodologies are adopted to ensure process capability and defect prevention throughout the product lifecycle.
In-process quality is verified at every stage of manufacture by trained and competent team members, traceability records are maintained and SPC trends monitored in real time via our Bespoke SPC Software and Insight 123 MRP databases.
Poka-Yoke methods are utilised coupled with vision detection systems and in-process leak testing.
We achieve world class standards of Parts Per Million (PPM) defects, when occasional quality concerns are experienced they are managed via the Global 8D Process with thorough root cause analysis conducted by a cross functional team to establish and verify the actual root cause, robust countermeasures are then deployed, verified and monitored to prevent reoccurrence.
