ISO 9001 and 14001 Assistance for Connector Manufacturers

 

ISO certification is necessary for many manufacturers and is an integral part of the company strategy to increase revenue and reduce costs. As an example, ISO 9001 has Eight Quality Management Principles, which include Customer Focus and Process Approach:

 

Customer Focus
Quality is defined as meeting the customer's requirements. By focusing on the customer those requirements can be better defined. Customer requirements include physical attributes of the hardware, delivery and service needs, among others.

 

Process Approach
A process is a sequence of activities which transforms inputs into outputs. Therefore the company processes and how they relate to each other must be understood. ISO 14001 requires the company to define all aspects of process activities that impact the environment.
