Reading time ( words)

AWS Electronics Group is delighted to announce the achievement of AS9100 Revision D at its Newcastle-under-Lyme facility in the UK. The new revision closely aligns with the recently updated quality management systems (QMS) standard ISO 9001:2015 (achieved by AWS in late 2016), with a focus on improving customer satisfaction and ensuring customer needs are met at all times. Attainment of the latest AS9100 revision displays an on-going commitment by AWS to provide exceptional service to its customers in the aerospace industry.

AWS offers a wide range of capabilities for its aerospace customers, with recent projects including complex PCB assembly and cables for a leading international manufacturer of military aircraft, in addition to high-complexity box build, PCBs and cable assembly for unmanned air vehicles (UAV) in the defence sector. AWS also has experience with guidance PCB assemblies for actuation and propeller systems, having worked on such projects for a large US aerospace manufacturing company.

Paul Deehan, CEO AWS Electronics Group, comments, “When I joined AWS Electronics Group 12 1/2 years ago, the company only held the ISO 9001 standard. The aerospace AS9100 accreditation was the first that we aimed to achieve in addition to this, which we were awarded just over one year later. It is pleasing to see us still working with customers who require this standard and also the numerous other accreditations we have achieved over the last 12 years as we developed into a variety of markets.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
