REDCOM EMS Completes AS9100D:2016 Certification


Reading time ( words)

REDCOM EMS, a business unit of REDCOM Laboratories, has achieved AS9100D:2016 certification for its Quality Management System. This certification supplements the company’s existing ISO9001:2015 certification. AS9100D:2016 is a standardized quality management and quality assurance system developed for the specialized requirements of the aviation, space, and defense industries. The successful completion of the audit and certification to the international aerospace quality standard signifies REDCOM EMS’s commitment to meeting stringent customer requirements.

“Acquiring the AS9100D:2016 certification will enable REDCOM EMS to expand upon opportunities with current customers and allow us to reach an entirely new customer base,” said Steve Husband, vice president of manufacturing, REDCOM and general manager, REDCOM EMS. “The audit process to obtain this certification was a team effort and it took a lot of work. This demonstrates the commitment we have to continuous improvement for the benefit of our demanding customer base.” 

Quality Engineer Lauren Iuranich led the team in obtaining this certification. “We’re doing something that everyone thought was impossible: growing a manufacturing business in Upstate New York,” Iuranich remarked. As a quality engineer, she’s continuously helping push REDCOM EMS into the future by working to gain further certifications, while also improving processes and systems throughout the manufacturing environment. “This AS9100D:2016 certification (and the ISO 13485 certification we’re working on for later this year) will help us continue on that path of success.”

REDCOM EMS’ AS9100D:2016 certificate (74 300 4560) became effective on July 7, 2019 and was issued by TUV Rheinland, a certification body and global leader in independent quality inspection services. Maintaining certification will require rigorous and comprehensive audits by the internal team and annual validation by a third-party certifying body to ensure compliance with the standard.

Book Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Smart Data, Chapter 1

12/30/2020 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

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.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
