Quality Consultation & Auditing

Quality Department Audits

Using industrial standards for quality departments, VQS can review your current systems to determine where to focus your improvement efforts. Reviews can range from Drill-deep audits that check every process to quick fitness audits. We are able to develop, audit, and correct Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), and Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) processes. We also can establish and interpret Statistical Process Control (SPC) methods and perform Measurement System Analysis (MSA) to determine the capability of your measurement systems. We help produce an action item list and responsibility matrix to push implementation of the necessary changes.

Supplier Audits

With the higher demands of your customers, your incoming subcomponents become more important. VQS can send personnel to perform supplier audits using your internal audit or using our template. We strive to continuously improve the relationships in the supply chain to help produce a conforming finished product.

Customer Satisfaction Cycle

VQS has developed a detailed set of processes and documents designed to help any supplier improve their productivity and throughput. The Customer Satisfaction Cycle focus on key areas that affect customer satisfaction, such as Quality, Material, and Production activities. The initial audit examines the existing system and identifies the opportunities for improvements. Then, using our field-tested methodology to help implement processes to strengthen your supplier base and increase customer satisfaction.

Troubleshooting

VQS can effectively troubleshoot issues whether they are single cause or more systematic problems. Problem solving services can be performed at your facility or at a customer's location.
