HumiSeal Gains IATF 16949 Certification for Pittsburgh Facility

Reading time ( words)

HumiSeal®, a leading conformal coating manufacturer, has gained IATF 16949 certification for its Pittsburgh USA manufacturing facility. This is in addition to the IATF 16949 certification already achieved by the Winnersh UK facility, which further solidifies the company’s continued commitment to the quality and consistency of products manufactured.

IATF 16949 is the global technical specification and quality management standard for the automotive industry. The certification follows significant investment and several months of implementing further quality assurance protocols across the company’s manufacturing and distribution operations.

The IATF 16949 originally published in 1999 to create and promote harmonization of supplier quality systems to improve product and process quality in the automotive industry. IATF 16949 is a common global registration recognized by all participating organizations of the IATF, which includes, but is not limited to, DaimlerChrysler AG, Ford Motor Company, General Motors Corporation, BMW, and Volkswagen.

Dave Coye, Quality Director, and project sponsor commented: “As our commitment to all customers, we continue to improve our quality systems through investment in our employees, systems, and infrastructure that ensures best in class products supplied to electronics manufacturing.  This is an exciting achievement for another HumiSeal manufacturing facility to be certified to the highest quality standard.”

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.
